Histochemical analysis is one of the valuable standardization processes of quality control of crude drugs to locate the presence of ergastic cell contents in the histological zones of the plant. In the current study, the leaves, stems and the roots of three Viburnum Linn. species were collected, authentificated and preserved fresh in Formalin-Aceto-Alcohol solution. A primary organic analysis was carried out using their extracts to identify the presence of diverse categories of phyto-constituents followed by subjecting hand sections of plant organs to histochemical analysis. The presence of some ergastic cell contents such as lignin, starch grains, saponins, druses, phenolic compounds, mucilage and suberin were micro-photographed and the results were tabulated. This article will be surely a referential tool for further scientific studies of their phyto-chemical and phyto-constituents based biological aspects.
