POTD: Star Of Bethlehem

Posted on

Pl@ntNet had a little trouble with this one. It didn’t show up in World Flora or USA Flora but, finally showed up in Western Europe Flora. In the Asparagaceae family (which includes asparagus…yum), its genus & species is Ornithogalum Nutans. In this case, it is a Drooping Star of Bethlehem. ~Vic

POTD: Lilium

Posted on Updated on

This is definitely a lily or Liliaceae but, what species? It could be a Candidum or, possibly a Longiflorum. It’s nearly impossible to tell even with Pl@ntNet. There are just too many varieties and hybrids. It’s beautiful, though. ~Vic
