The leaves of Boophone disticha grow to over 24" inches long or more on mature specimens with the bulb eventually reaching 8"+ inches in diameter on mature specimens. The leaves form a distinctive fan of blue-green narrow leaves. Common names: Gifbol, Tumbleweed, Veld fan and Windball. Synonyms: Boophane disticha and Buphane disticha. Chemical extraction of B. disticha bulb and Ammocharis coranica scales 84 Isolation of the alkaloids from the bulb of B. disticha 85 Chemical extraction and analysis of viscera and case exhibits 87 Result and discussion Chromatography and detection of Amaryllidaceae alkaloids Boophone disticha (Amaryllidaceae) is widely used in traditional medicine in southern Africa. Several alkaloids, volatile oils and fatty acids have been isolated from the plant. However, there has been no literature report of a triterpene from B. ucalenol, a cycloartane triterpene, together with its regio-isomer, was isolated from the ethyl acetate extract of the bulbs using.

Boophane disticha small BULB. Fan-leaved Boophone (e), Gifbol (a), leshoma (SS), incumbe (Sw), incotho (z,x). Very, hardy, deciduous plant with a huge bulb. In warm areas the bulb is held above the soil while in colder areas is is below ground level as a protection against frost. The large red flower head appears in early spring before the leaves. Bulbs John E. Bryan John Bryan's substantive revision to his original magnum opus published in — selected by the American Horticultural Society as one of the 75 great American gardening books— provides expanded coverage of some genera and a staggering number of . With o distinct species in sub-Saharan Africa alone, the African continent is endowed with an enormous wealth of plant resources. While more than 25 percent of known species have been used for several centuries in traditional African medicine for the prevention and treatment of diseases, Africa remains a minor player in the global natural products market largely due to lack of. The name narcissine has therefore been dropped. Lycorine is quite common in the N.O. Amaryllidaceae. It was found in Buphane disticha by Tutin in the Mellome Research Laboratory in (Journ. Chem. Soc. Transacti page 1,). It is generally present in quite small quantities, at most to per cent of the fresh material.

Aus den frischen Zwiebeln von Buphane disticha (L. F.) HERB. (Amaryllidacee), die 0,3% Alkaloide enthalten, konnten 11 einheitliche Alkaloide (95% der Gesamtalkaloide) isoliert werden. B. disticha is one of the most popular bulbous plants used in traditional medicine and several of these functions can be linked to its alkaloid constituents [13].   Extracts of Boophone disticha (L.f.) Herb. (Amaryllidaceae) have been used in Southern Africa for a variety of medicinal and other purposes (Nair and Van Staden, ).Whereas a number of phytochemicals have been isolated and identified from B. disticha, most researchers have focused largely on the alkaloidal constituents of the is not surprising since the pharmacological . Boophone disticha is a bulbous tropical and subtropical flowering plant, endemic to ly called the century plant or tumbleweed, Boophone disticha was first collected in from South Africa by Swedish botanist Carl Peter Thunberg and described by Linnaeus as Amaryllis disticha. Since that time it has been placed in the genera Brunsvigia and Haemanthus, finally coming to rest as.
