Star Of Bethlehem - Ornithogalum umbellatum

SKU: 1.09

A white star like flower April to May following early foliage. Wild in grassy places from Northern Europe to the Holy Land where the bulbs were used as food by pilgrims, and known as Dogs Onions until the more wholesome name arrived in the 15th Century; this is native in Britain only in Eastern England. It naturalises well in open sites in most soils and is especially suited to growing through grass.
