Fresh ornithogalum, extra-long enjoyment. Mother Nature was having a good day when she designed the Ornithogalum. Look at the creative construction of this flower!
COLOURS AND SHAPES
Ornithogalum has a long flower stem with a cluster of tiny white flowers at the end, surrounding a black centre. A flower full of little flowers, in fact. The flowers open one by one and do not rush. So you can enjoy them for a long time.
Many flowers have a symbolic meaning, did you know? So you can match a flower to the occasion or the person you are giving it to. The symbolic meaning of Ornithogalum is purity.
Most Ornithogalum species are native to southern Europe, South Africa and Asia. The name Ornithogalum comes from the Greek ornis or ornithos (bird) and galum (milk). This is why you also come across the flower under the name bird milk. But where this Greek name comes from? Whoever knows may say. The flower is part of the asparagus family, but bird's milk is not meant for consumption.
