You have to have a little bit of patience with this flower. They are a bit boring in the beginning, but appearances can be deceptive. Ornithogalum Brownies bloom slowly yet beautifully open. They start with a brown tint and the colour shifts to light pink as they continue to open. The contrast of the unopened somewhat spiky blooms and the sweetly coloured delicate flowers is stunning. These can be enjoyed at length as they have an impressive vase life.
