When Do Ornithogalum Bloom in Missouri?
As you may have already guessed, there are two main factors that determine when Ornithogalum will bloom: where your Ornithogalum are planted & weather (time).
Bloom Time Depends on Where Your Ornithogalum Are Planted!!!
When your Ornithogalum will bloom will depend on exactly where it is planted in your yard or garden
In general, expect the following:
- If a ornithogalum is planted in an area of your yard that receives full sun it will bloom around the same time every year or up to two weeks early due to warm weather and extra sunlight.
- If a ornithogalum is planted in an area of your yard that received partial sun it will bloom around the same time every year.
- If a ornithogalum is planted in an area of your yard that receives shade and is not protected from wind or rain it will bloom anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks later than its average time.
