Here's another mystery from the bouquet Howie brought home. This one has a light scent and the white blooms are about the same diameter as a 1/2 dollar coin if spread. The white blooms encircle that long green flowerhead (for lack of a better term), which is about 4" long.
Is it a tuberose of some sort? Isn't it pretty? :)

I think it is ornithogalum thyrsoides-Chincherinchee--easy to grow and the blooms open up slowly-lending itself to be a nice cut flower. Bulbs can be dug and wintered over inside.--Dutch Gardens carries them as well as many garden centers- I love them
Wintermoor-I should have checked your hyperlink-before posting. I have another kind of bulb that I know as Star of Bethlehem-prolific summer bloomer of single white flowers- I need to check out the name for that one.
