Ornithogalum bulbs are Spring flowering bulbs that come in a number of varieties with different growing habits and flower types. Some common varieties are Chincherinchee, Black Pearl Lily and Star of Bethlehem. They form large clumps of grassy to strap-like leaves. Depending on the variety, some time during Spring, stalks appear and white to ivory with black centered flowers appear. These flowers are long lasting as cut flowers. Ornithogalum prefer full sun to part shade in well drained soil.
