Happy new year! We’re so excited for the new year and the fresh start that January always brings. That’s why we always choose a white flower to symbolize the blank slate at the start of the year. So for our January 2018 calendar, we’re showcasing white star of Bethlehem!
This particular variety of star of Bethlehem is called Ornithogalum Saundersiae or giant chincherinchee. When it’s fully bloomed, the cluster of star-shaped blooms form a rounded shape which make it different from your typical species of star of bethlehem that have a more conical shape.
It’s a beautiful flower that can grow quite long (at least 30” or more!). A large bunch of these in a tall vase can make quite a statement piece all on its own. It’s simple yet elegant and when properly cared for, can also last a long time! You can check out our full collection of star of Bethlehem to learn more and see other colors and varieties of this beautiful flower!
I hope that you had a wonderful holiday with friends and family and that the new year will bring new adventures and exciting new things! I know we’re looking forward to bringing you another year of gorgeous flowers so come back and visit us again soon!
