Buy Ornithogalum umbellatum star-of-Bethlehem: A fast-growing, early summer flowering bulb

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: half hardy (will require winter protection)
  • Bulb size: 4/5cm

    This easy to grow perennial will quickly spread to form a generous colony, which in late spring and early summer, is topped with star-shaped white flowers. A great addition to the front of a border, the bulbs can also be naturalised in turf or grown in pots on the patio.

  • Garden care: Plant 10cm (4in) deep in naturalistic groups in autumn. During summer when the bulbs are dormant lift and divide groups that are becoming congested. Deadhead after flowering to inhibit unwanted seedlings.
