Native to Europe and the Caucasuses, ornithogalums have been part of European and American gardens for centuries. They are members of the lily family and produce clusters of flowers in red, yellow and white. The most famous member of this group is the Star of Bethlehem, a beautiful white flowered plant with spotted leaves. There are many references to ornithogalums throughout horticultural literature. In a 1740 letter to the famed American plant collector, John Bartram, his friend, Peter Collinson, wrote that he was sending a box of bulbs, "such a collection as is rarely to be met with...with Ornithogalums...with many others." For more than three centuries, this species has been a beloved and important part of many gardens. Ornithogalums prefer full sun, good moisture, well drained soil and mulching in colder climates. They are excellent naturalizers and make good cut flowers. Plant 4-6" deep and 4-6" apart.
