Ornithogalum ponticum Sochii

This rare beauty has graceful spires openly studded with star-shaped glistening white flowers with green midveins and yellow centers. The flowers open from the bottom up for a lengthy display in the garden or as a long-lasting cut flower. Since it’s not very hardy, you may want to apply no more than a 2" layer of mulch after the surface of the ground freezes to protect it from winter temperature spiking in the event of inconsistent snow coverage. It is spectacular interplanted with Allium siculum bulgaricum.

You’ll need about nine bulbs per square foot. (Square footage is determined multiplying the planting site’s length times its width.) Bulb size: 10 cm/up. Full to partial sunlight. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: June. Plant 4" to 6" deep and 4" to 6" apart. HZ: 5-8. Height: 24".
