Ornithogalum magnum (Giant Starflower) [40 seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced sowers only, because they will require a good bit of patience. Sow them as soon as you get them, barely covered, in a pot and leave it in a spot outdoors where it is safe from mice, so it can get a natural chilling period. Or, sow in a holding bed, where you can leave the seedlings undisturbed for several years. If you’re not after the maximum number of seedlings to start with, you could even try scattering the seeds where you’d like the bulbs to grow. The grass-like seedlings should appear in spring but might take an extra year if they don’t get enough chilling before the first spring. Expect them to take several years to reach flowering size.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

In stock


Giant starflower (Ornithogalum magnum) produces loose, spike-like clusters of starry, white flowers on 3-foot stems in late spring to early summer over rosettes of strappy, bright green leaves. It then goes dormant quickly after bloom, making it a good filler around perennials that don’t start filling out much until early to midsummer, such as asters and warm-season ornamental grasses. This perennial bulb grows well in full sun to light shade and average, well-drained soil in Zones 5 to 8. It will likely self-sow if you do not clip off the stems once the flowers are finished.

Harvested in mid July 2023. At least 40 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
