I came across a bulbous plant in our local supermarket yesterday. The tag on it said it was named 'White Star', no latin name, nothing. The only other thing it said was that it was from S. Africa. The clerk at the flower counter knew nothing about it either. I'm guessing it's some type of ornithogalum, possibly O. thyrsoides, which is the closest picture I have found of it. Has anyone heard of them being called 'White Star'? I didn't purchase it yesterday as it was -30C all day and no amount of wrapping and prewarmed car, well I would not put a plant through that!
