This is called “Star of Bethlehem”, but it is not the weed that is native to North Carolina.
This is Ornithogalum arabicum.
Its blooms sit on a eighteen-inch stalk.
It has a lovely fragrance.
I love the shiny black eyes in the center.
Mine are planted near our walkway into the house.
It is a star in my eastern garden, though it comes from the Mediterranean.
