Abstract

Many herbal plants have the ability to synthesis a wide variety of chemical compounds that are used to perform important biological functions. Zephyranthes candida is a perennial herb grows in china used as traditional medicinal and ornamental plant species, belonging to Amaryllidaceae family. The present review attempts to encompass the upto date comprehensive literature analysis on Zephyranthes candida with respect to its phytochemistry and its various pharmacological activities.

Key Words: Zephyranthes candida, Flavonoids, Alkaloids, Amaryllidaceae, Anti-microbial
