These are white or off-white with green or brown shading in the centre, which fades over time. These flowers last a long time, once open, and bend towards the light. The leaves are fleshy and sword-shaped, and only number about six per stalk. They feel soft and smooth to the touch.

Common name: Star-of-Bethlehem, Chincherinchee, Snake Flower, Prussian Asparagus.
Color: White, Orange
Bloom time: The Ornithogalum thyrsoides flowers from October to February, providing lasting blooms that grace gardens and landscapes with their pristine blooms during the hottest months.
Height: 4 to 24 inches (10—60 cm).
Difficulty level: Medium

Planting & Care
Full sunlight through to full shade. Good drainage. Rich soil. In the early spring supply a top dressing of manure. Provide frequent feeds with weak fertilizer. Divide frequently to maintain vigor. Deadhead before seed-set to prevent spreading.

Sunlight: Sunny and shady areas.

Water: Keep soil moist throughout the growing season.

Temprature: 60°F (16°C).

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer in every 2 months.

Care:
  • It is easiest to grow Star of Bethlehem, Sun Star and other Ornithogalum from bulbs, these should be planted at from 7 to 15 cm deep in the spring (for summer flowering) or Autumn (for spring flowering).
  • The Star of Bethlehem should be planted at about 10 to 15 cm apart into a rich soil.
  • Ornithogalum species are able to grow in both sunny and shady areas of the garden, but they do require good drainage.
  • If growing Ornithogalum from seeds then it is best to sow the seeds in flats in the spring (lightly cover the seeds).
  • The flat should then be covered with a plastic bag, and placed in the fridge for about three weeks.
  • The flat should then be sunk into the ground in a shady part of the garden and allowed to germinate, Ornithogalum can take anything from one to six months to germinate.
  • Once young seedlings appear transplant them to their final location.


Care:
  • It is fairly easy to look after Star of Bethlehem (Ornithogalum bethlehem) and Chinkerinchee (Ornithogalum thyrsoides) and similar species; they should be fertilized in April by mixing manure into the soil; they will also require a light fertilising until the end of the summer.
  • Once established Ornithogalum may encroach, so weed as appropriate.


Special Feature:
These plants are best propagated by splitting the bulbils from the main bulbs and planting these.
Use
Ornamental use:
  • Ornithogalum thyrsoides grows well in gardens and provides pretty bursts of white amongst the green foliage.


Note:
They are poisonous for horses and cattle, if consumed.
