Can anyone ID this white 6 petaled star shaped flower? it came up with my iris reticlata bulbs last spring. the bud has a unique green and white stiped look.
thanks for any help.
That looks like a Star of Bethlehem from the genus Ornithogalum.
I just got done digging about a gazillion of the awful "Star of Bethlehem" out of my front garden bed. I cnanot get rid of it. Does anyone know if Round Up would work? I hate them. I dig them out evey year and no matter what I do I can't get rid of them!
i get them everywere but i like em :) to cute n pretty,
Just cut off the leaves and let them stay in the garden. The leaves will add a small amount of nitrogen and after a while the bulbs will run out of stored food and die.
