From a Wiki article:

Over the holidays, you may have seen the Star of Bethlehem, Ornithogalum umbellatum, in many Christmas floral arrangements. Its name alone signifies its meaning in regards to the holiday season. This flower is often used in religious ceremonies symbolizing innocence, purity, honesty, hope and forgiveness.

 

  • The Star of Bethlehem is a winter bulb and belongs to the lily family.

    • Thanks, Sandee! They sure are. I only knew what they were because of the label when I saw them at the store. Makes a nice bouquet or an addition to an arrangement.
      Hope your day is going good! ❤
