Chincherinchee (O. thyroides)
This species grows to approximately 30 cm tall and produces a mass of papery white flowers when in bloom. The uniqueness of this variety is that the flower colour can easily be changed by dipping the stems in dye or ink.
Arab’s Eye (O. arabicum)
This species gets its name from the eye that is formed by the papery white petals of the flower that surround a black centre. This is a great choice for strong scents in the garden.
Star of Bethlehem (O. umbellatum)
This differs from the other species in that the flowers have a waxy form with green stripes appearing on the underside of the petals.
