Ornitholgalum dubium "Coconut Cream" white and caramel mocha Star of Bethlehem flowering houseplant
Ornithogalum dubium, also known as a Star of Bethlehem flower, sun star, or snake flower is originally from South Africa. It makes a lovely but underrated houseplant with a gorgeous show of long lived star shaped blooms in the spring. The flowers can get up to 20" tall and can last 1-3 months. Cut flowers can last up to three weeks. This interesting plant typically needs to go dormant after flowering, even when grown indoors. Most O. dubium has orange or yellow flowers. "Coconut Cream" is a unique and rare variety with creamy white flowers centered in delicious caramel and mocha brown.
We typically prefer to use all our own photos. However, because this is the first year we have grown this variety we do not have any bloom photos, and want to show them for our customers to better understand what they are buying.
