Could someone identify this Ornithogalum? The descendents came from Delphi, Greece.
The plant itself grows from September through winter with 3-5 leaves which are about 1 cm broad and lie flat on the rocks. Now, when it gets hot, the leaves shrivel and the flowers do appear. I tried to take a photo of one of them where the leaves were still visible, but all others are in flower now without leaves. The flowers are in small loose groups and about 10 cm above the rocks.
