[273-2] The Creeks had, according to Hawkins, not less than seven sacred plants; chief of them were the cassine yupon, called by botanists _Ilex vomitoria_, or _Ilex cassina_, of the natural order Aquifoliaceæ; and the blue flag, _Iris versicolor_, natural order Iridaceæ.
Tobacco, the maguey, coca; in California the chucuaco; among the Mexicans the snake plant, ollinhiqui or coaxihuitl; and among the southern tribes of our own country the cassine yupon and iris versicolor, [273-2] were used; and, it is even said, were cultivated for this purpose.
