SWEET HERMODACTYL

(Colcium Luteum)

“The “sweet hermodactyl” likely refers to the plant Colchicum autumnale, also known as autumn crocus, meadow saffron,This plant’s corms were brought from Oriental countries and were believed to be identical to the ancient hermodactyls. They were used for their medicinal properties, particularly in treating gout and rheumatism due to their colchicine content.In modern times, the term “Hermodactyl” has been associated with Iris tuberosa, formerly known as Hermodactylus tuberosus. This plant is a species of tuberous flowering plant of the genus Iris, with common names like snake’s-head, snake’s-head iris, widow iris, black iris, or velvet flower-de-luce. It is native to the Mediterranean region and is found in the northern Mediterranean littoral and western Europe . The plant is appreciated for its ornamental value rather than its medicinal uses today.
