Thank you. I thought it looked like some I had seen on HGTV, but when I looked it up on the net, it looked different. They were just different varieties listed than what it was.
My blooms are white with a speck in it and I can't remember what color the speck is. Want to trade a bulb or two? The description and the flower match other than the color.Jim
Sure! Assuming I can find them, as the foliage has died back. I think I can though. I'll e-mail you my address.
I think I can find mine or hopefully anyway. They sure are pretty and I don't have but two clumps. I dug the clumps up and moved the whole clump so i'm not sure how many bulbs I have.I will get to digging. Jim
Other common names are: Eleven o'clock lady, nap at noon and would you beleive should I say "uncommon" name for this one is Doves Dung - according to my "Passalong Plants" book by Steve Bender and Felder Rushing. This one is an easy and fun read.
I'll have to remember that dove dung one. Any body ask for some bulb's that I don't like I'll use it on them. Maybe embellish the story a little. Thanks for posting.Makes gardening even more fun with this knowledge.
I have extra Star of Bethlehem for postage if some is needed.
