The elegant, white and silver-green star shaped flowers open on upright stems.
Up to 20 velvety blooms can open on each 30-40cm stem. Their soft colour scheme is easy to use in any garden, or vase.
Ornithogalum ‘Silver Chimes’ flowers draw a lot of attention when people visit our gardens; for us it begins flowering early September and lasts until the end of October.
Ornithogalum ‘Silver Chimes’ grows well in pots and of course in the garden. Try planting them at the base of deciduous trees, in borders or rockeries. The foliage is long and strappy, but it is a bit lazy so tends to arch and then lay on the ground which looks nice and informal.
Ornithogalum ‘Silver Chimes’ is a good bulb for naturalising, and it will gradually form clumps.
Plant Ornithogalum ‘Silver Chimes’ in full sun to part shade in a well drained soil. Plant 10cm deep and the same apart. Water in to establish and then only if rainfall is low during growth, they become dry tolerant as they mature.
