A good choice

ornithogalum ornithogalum magnum

In the autumn of last year Pam from Tavernelle showed us a bulb catalogue. We selected some tulip bulbs which she kindly ordered for us. Apart from the tulips we also ordered some bulbs of “Ornithogalum magnum”. We had never seen this before but in one of the gardening books there was a picture of an attractive white plant with a white star shaped flower – its common name is Star of Bethlehem (photo on left). So we decided to buy it. What a good buy!  The variety Ornithogalum magnum (right)is very showy as you can see. Hasn’t quite the delicacy of the standard variety but its looks very exotic and seems to have about 100 star of bethlehem plants on one stem. Very glad we bought it.
