> whose paperwork left something to be desired.
> This mystery bulb appears to be Ornithogalum nutans but the flowers lack
> the broad green marking on the outside of the tepals. The leaves are
> broad, for an Ornithogalum and relatively flaccid. It has been growing
> in a partially shaded situation for a number of years.
> Are there forms of O. nutans that lack the broad green stripe on the
> outside of the petals?
