(Narbonne Star-of-Bethlehem, Star-of-Bethlehem)

Very tall flower stems with starry white flowers are seen on the Narbonne star-of-Bethlehem anytime from early spring to very early summer (depending on climate). This bulbous perennial is native to mountains, steppes and deserts from the western Mediterranean (including coastal France) as far east as the Caucasus and Iran.

The leaves are green with grayish scales. The basal foliage looks like that of an garden onion with its narrow blades and somewhat arching or floppy habit. When in bloom,...

(Drooping Star-of-Bethlehem, Nodding Star-of-Bethlehem, Silver Bells)

This species of star-of-Bethlehem is rather easy to distinguish from others because of the bell-like nodding flowers and the central silver stripe on the leaves. This bulbous perennial is native to the eastern Mediterranean and southwestern Asia. The tall flower stalks make great cut flowers.

Bright green, strap-like leaves grow directly from the underground bulb. They form a basal rosette with their semi-erect and flopping form. A silver stripe is seen down the middle of each leaf. In springtime,...

(Chincherinchee, Star-of-Bethlehem, Wonder Flower)

The chincherinchee is one of the world's finest cut flowers. The tall flower stems and long-lasting blooms are just two reasons why. Chincherinchee - also simply and ambiguously called a star-of-Bethlehem - is native to the Northern and Western Cape provinces in South Africa. It adapts well to garden culture in both hot, dry summer regions and where the summers are somewhat rainy followed by frosty winters. Chincherinchee is a perennial that grows from underground bulbs.

The robust plant produces...

(Eleven-o'clock Lady, Grass Lily, Nap-at-Noon, Sleepydick, Star-of-Bethlehem)

Very pretty in bloom, this star-of-Bethlehem species is often regarded as a pesky weed because of its copious seed production and ability to escape cultivation. A bulbous perennial, it's native to the Mediterranean from Portugal to Turkey, the Middle East and coastal Egypt. It prospers along river banks or other moist areas.

When not in flower, the foliage looks simply like a mundane tuft of lawn grass (the reason it's also known as grass lily). From late spring to very early summer, the starry...

(Chilean Wood Sorrel, Pink Buttercups, Pink Carpet Oxalis, Silver Shamrock)

The pretty shamrock-like leaves of Chilean wood sorrel are powdery gray-green and contrast beautifully with its fuchsia and white flowers that appear from spring to early fall. This tidy, clump forming perennial is native to the Chilean and Argentinean Andes, so it grows best where summers are milder.

Chilean wood sorrel grows from small bulbs covered with thin hairs. It is usually dormant for part of the year, from either winter cold or prolonged drought. It's clover-like leaves are made up...

(Sorrel, Wood Sorrel)

Pink sorrel has beautiful shamrock foliage and rosy-pink flowers with darker throats that bloom in flushes from spring to fall. Native to a vast expanse of southern South America, this tender perennial grows from hard, woody rhizomes (underground stems) that penetrate deep in the soil and allow it to withstand drought.

The plant forms a clump of green, trifoliate leaves that rise from slender, fleshy stems atop the spreading, rhizomatous roots. Umbels of flowers appear through summer and...

(White Sorrel)

Blooming in flushes from spring to fall, white sorrel has the traditional shamrock leaves but with white blossoms. Native to a vast expanse of southern South America, this tender perennial grows from hard, woody rhizomes (underground stems) deep in the soil, allowing it to withstand droughts.

The plant grows in a clump of green leaves with the flowers held slightly above them and facing upward. Each flower has five petals, oval or wedge-shaped, and colored white with a tiny yellow eye. Blooming...

(Bowie's Wood Sorrel, Red-flowering Oxalis)

Bearing lush leaves that resemble shamrocks, this tender bulbous perennial is native to eastern South Africa.

The leathery rich green leaves have three broad heart-shaped lobes. They are held atop tall, thin, upright or lax stems that arise directly from the narrow pointed bulbs. The foliage may die back in chilly winters or dry summers. Dainty, cup-shaped, vivid magenta-fuchsia flowers herald the autumn months, sometimes continuing into winter. The five-petaled blossoms are borne singly or...

(Brazilian Sorrel)

With low-growing green leaves that look like luscious shamrocks, Brazilian sorrel's dainty but vivid violet-magenta flowers with darker edges occur in early spring's warmth. A mat-forming perennial that spreads itself in the landscape, it is native to the warm highlands of interior southern Brazil. It grows from bulbs and although multiplying and reseeding, it is a nuisance weed that naturalizes in mild winter areas, such as southern Japan and southeastern Australia.

The leathery bright light...
