Ornithogalum

Ornithogalum is one of my favorite flowers. Also known as Star of Bethlehem, it is very long-lasting ( two weeks) and looks great all on its own. Last week the Designer I worked with picked up several large bunches of some super-size variety at the Flower Market. Notice in the picture her hand in relation to the blooms. The flower head is usually about 2 inches in length. This jumbo variety was amazing and gorgeous and opened up like giant white firecrackers.
