The scoop on Ornithogalum Umbellatum (Star of Bethlehem)

One of most winter hardy members of this clan, Star of Bethlehem flowers in late spring, creating sprays of white stars in casual borders and along naturalized edge areas.

Why Grow Ornithogalum?

  • Star of Bethlehem forms a rosette of 10-12" foliage that frames the sprays of white flowers
  • Blooms are 6 pointed stars with green stripes accented the back of each petal
  • Star of Bethlehem naturalizes readily and grows in average to moist soils
  • The striped petals can be seen early in the morning and on cloudy days, when the flowers stay closed, waiting for sunlight
  • These flowers are native to North Africa and parts of Europe

These plants are vigorous; site where they can spread without disturbing a tidy landscape design. Or when a patch of bare soil calls out for spring flowers.
