Description

Ornithogalum umbellatum, commonly known as 'Star of Bethlehem', is a bulbous perennial . Narrow, semi-erect, grass-like, linear leaves grow in a basal clump to 6-12" tall. Leaves begin to droop and fade as the flower stems (6-8") rise in late spring to early summer, each stem bearing 10-20 starry white flowers (each to 3/4" wide) in an open, umbel-like, terminal cluster. Flowers are striped green on the outside. Flowers open near noon and close at sunset or in cloudy weather.

Environment

It prefers a sunny postion in a well mulched, well drained soil. They can also be grown in position that gets light, dappled shade. Fertilise with a liquid fertiliser through the growing season. After flowering, the foliage should be left until the plant dies down, as this feeds the next years growth. The plant will die down to ground level in late autumn to winter, and reshoot in spring. They can be left in the ground over winter.

Properly preparing the soil for bulb planting is essential! Good soil drainage is essential for planting bulbs. If your soil has a lot of clay content, consider adding a bit of coco peat. Consider your sunlight requirements based not he type of bulb you have chosen to go with. Some plants might be happy in a semi shade environment under a tree whereas someone might require full sunlight.

The general rule of thumb for planting spring bulbs is to plant two to three times as deep as the bulbs is tall. This means most large bulbs like tulips or daffodils will be planted about 8 inches deep while smaller bulbs will be planted 3-4 inches deep. Planting depth is measured from the bottom of the bulb.
