According to the Pacific Bulb Society "Ornithogalum magnum may well be the species to cause you to reconsider the place of the members of this genus in the garden. It's well named: the scapes can easily go up to three feet high, and with the high bud count the plant remains in bloom for weeks." In other words, in a group of plants that isn't well known to begin with, this stand out really shines. Ornithogalum magnus displays the classic cheery white flowers of this group punctuated with fresh green eyes and opening from the bottom upwards along a tall spire. Deer and rodent resistant, easily cultivated, well behaved, winter hardy to zone 5 and good for cutting. Heirloom.
