Ornithogalum umbellatum tepals Abaxial side of tepals.

Flowering - April - June.

Habitat - Cultivated and escaped into open fields, waste ground, parks, open woods, roadsides, railroads.

Origin - Native to Europe.

Other info. - Like many of the lilies, this plant is toxic. Apparently it is quick to spread and hence easy to propagate. The individual flowers don't last long, only a couple of days, but the plant produces many flowers and is certainly striking.
