Urginea grandiflora Bak. and Pancratium tortuosum Herbert are bulbous, medicinal plants endemic to the Sudan. The aim of this study was to provide information on the anatomical properties of the leaves and roots of these two bulbous plants. Anatomical studies include cross sections of the leaves and roots. In addition, phytochemical screening methods were applied for identifying the major chemical groups in these species. This study provides referential botanical and phytochemical information for correct identification of these plants.
