Ornithogalum pyrenaicum

Ornithogalum pyrenaicum is naturalised in parts of south-west England, where it is known as the Bath asparagus, but it comes from southern Europe, as far south as Morocco and as far east as the Crimea. So the name 'pyrenaicum' does not tell the whole truth. It has narrow, glaucous leaves, and a tall loose spike of narrow-petalled, starry flowers, basically white but tinged with green or creamy yellow.

Tall stem of up to 50 starry, greenish- or creamy-white flowers.
