Ornithogalum lithopsoides

Wonderful succulent considered part of the hyacinth family since it consists of a globe bulb, only partially exposed above the ground, covered by a whitish, almost paper layer that protects it and keeps it vital even during the vegetative rest season. From the bulb there is a tuft of needle-like leaves of a beautiful emerald green, extremely thin and flexible just like a tuft of grass; the epidermis is covered by a veiled protective layer of whitish down, which makes the plant almost silvery in the sun. From the center of the foliage grows a long stem, at the apex of which blooms a real floral spike of microscopic and elegant whitish inflorescences.
