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.

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.
