A great dwarf species of Star of Bethlehem for naturalizing in your borders or rockeries. Plants have lots of starry white flowers with green stripes in April and May, and grow to a height of about 10-15cm. They spread naturally once established and can be left alone or divided in the summer after flowering. Flowers are scented.
Ornithogalums grow best in sun or light shade and in a rich well drained soil. These are hardy and can be left in the ground in most UK gardens. Plants grown from seed take time to grow big enough bulbs to flower, typically 3-4 years.
Pack of 30 seeds. Germination is erratic, so better for the more experienced gardener. Sow the seeds in autumn for germination in spring or sow anytime including 2-4 weeks in a fridge, to break seed dormancy. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
Caution:Harmful if eaten
