Watercolour on paper, no date (late 18th, early 19th century. Hand painted copy of an illustration commissioned by William Roxburgh. In his Flora indica Roxburgh mentions that this species and its varieties Dacca, Berar and China, are the most cultivated by the natives in India. Roxburgh reports "'G. herbaceum is in general cultivated all over Bengal and Coromandel. It is reared about Dacca, and furnishes that exceedingly fine cotton wool employed in manufacturing the very delicate, beautiful muslins of that place."
