  2. ORNITHOGALUM COLLINUM

    Although it is one of the most beautiful flowering bulbs, this neglected Mediterranean treasure is all but unknown to gardeners. In the wild, its brilliant white starry blooms sometimes cover the ground in their thousands, creating a fantastic spectacle.

This rare and fascinating British native has the extraordinary quality of having young flower shoots which may be eaten as a vegetable, similar to asparagus. The common name "Bath Asparagus" comes from the fact it was once abundant near the English city of the same name. ... Learn More
