What is the plant
Asphodelus ramosus, also known as branched asphodel, is a perennial herb in the Asparagales order. It has been thought to be Homer's asphodel of the underworld, but so has the closely related Asphodeline lutea. The branched asphodel is known to contain colchicine, a chemical used in the treatment of gout.
