Ornithogalum

Just can’t seem to escape this larger than life Ornithogalum. Again this bloom, sometimes known also as Star of Bethlehem, lasts for almost 2 weeks.

A few blooms look cute cut down in a square vase (above). Perfect for a bedside table, or in this case a bathroom sink.

Below, I added single stems to white tear drop shaped bud vases. The blooms are destined to open from bottom to top, like dazzling white firecrackers..

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.
