Ornithogalum magnum

I really like this different sort of Ornithogalum from Georgia, as in the Caucasus, not USA.  It forms tall spikes that flower rather late for a spring bulb, just as the foliage is dying back.  They are quite graceful among the other flowers in my garden right now.

It does produce seeds which can be used to propagate more, but I haven't really tried to grow more intentionally as the bulbs are quite cheap in the fall online bulb catalogs.  Sowing them in fall as with most spring bulbs should work, and germination should commence the following spring.
