Origin

Ornithogalum is known as the Star-of-Bethlehem, Chincherinchee, Snake Flower, and Arab’s Eyes. The common name “Star-of-Bethlehem” is based on the biblical event of the birth of Jesus where the Star of Bethlehem appeared. In Greek, “ornithos” means bird and “gala” means milk, but it’s not sure how this flower got its name. Also, a common Greek phrase was used to express something amazing. Ornithogalum is native to southern Europe, southern Africa, and the Middle East. This flower is from the family of Asparagaceae.
