Vernacular names

Echeandia (common name craglily) is a genus of New World plants in the century plant subfamily within the asparagus family.[4] It is named for Spanish botanist Pedro Gregorio Echeandía (1746–1817). Species in the genus are distributed from the south-western United States south to north-western Argentina, southern Bolivia, and southern Peru. They are herbaceous perennials with corms and enlarged storage roots.[5] The narrow leaves are held in basal rosettes. Flowers are in loose racemes[6] and may be yellow, orange, white or cream.[5]

There are about 78 to 90 species in the genus.[7]
