Ornithogalum Umbellatum (Star of Bethlehem)

Ever noticed that some of the most successful gardens include plants that aren't really stars but they're valuable contributors nonetheless? These support players fill in the spaces, provide frames for the flashy belles and weave in among the larger plants. Star of Bethlehem is a first class "weaver", popping white starry flowers up between others' leaves. This heirloom ornamental, first grown in 1593, is a wonderful partner for daylilies (see above photo), hostas, geraniums and many other leafy perennials. As for disposition - they don't get any easier than these.
