I've added an image of Ornithogalum magnum to the wiki. 
Please take a look at:


This species has been in the garden for several years now, and it's both
reliable and eye-catching. It's big: the emerging inflorescence suggests a
fat culinary asparagus and goes on to easily reach a height of three feet. 

I don't see this plant mentioned in any of the old standard references.
