The Amaryllidaceae has a major centre of diversity in South Africa, but despite high levels of endemism and horticultural potential, pollination and self-incompatibility have been little studied. This is exemplified by Cyrtanthus, a genus of about 56 species that exhibit remarkable diversity in floral morphology and colour (Snijman and Meerow.

Ethnopharmacological relevance: Human dermatophyte infections are one of the most common classes of infection globally, with an estimated billion people contracting at least one infection annually. Southern African ethnic groups used multiple plants to treat dermatophytosis and to alleviate the symptoms, yet the anti-dermatophyte properties of most species remain poorly explored.

Thereafter, this study identifies traditionally used medicinal plants used as blood purifiers in southern Africa and correlates these species to scientific studies, which may support evidence for these “blood purifying plant species”.Ethnobotanical books and review articles were used to identify medicinal plants used for blood purification.
