Common Star of Bethlehem Ornithogalum umbellatum
This flowering perennial produces an impressive flush of white star-shaped flowers for several weeks from April through to June. It is quick to establish, and to spread, and prefers a sunny site, though will tolerate partial shade. The 10 to 20 flowers on each stem open fully in full sunshine.
Plant your common star of Bethlehem about 7cm apart.
Spring wildflower bulbs 'in the green' are supplied when they are actively growing. This can be a more reliable way to transplant wildflower bulb species than from dormant bulbs planted in autumn. Wildflower bulbs in the green can be easier to plant as it is clear where the bulbs have been positioned. In most cases, the plants will flower the following spring.
Our bulbs are grown in the UK from British plants.
