What is Ornithogalum narbonense
Ornithogalum narbonense, or Star of Bethlehem (scientific name: Ornithogalum narbonense) is a cold-tolerant, bulbous perennial plant in the family Asparagaceae native to Europe and the Mediterranean coast. It grows wild in grasslands and wastelands. The subterranean scales are about 4 cm in diameter and are white and egg-shaped. From spring to early summer, it produces a large number of star-shaped white flowers that extend into a general inflorescence. The underside of the flower cap is a light green color. The genus name "Ornithogalum" means "bird's milk" in Latin, and the sub-species name "narbonense" means the French town name "Narbonne". The same genus is Ornithogalum arabicum.
