Star-of-Bethlehem (Ornithogalum umbellatum)

Similar in appearance
to wild onion and
wild garlic, star-ofBethlehem does not have the characteristic odor of onion and garlic. The
leaves are grooved and dark green
with a prominent white midrib. It is
also a bulbous perennial that dies
back in late spring to early summer.
