Pale blue bulbs.
No, they are different plants, although they are in the same family (asparagaceae) and flower at the same time. These articles tell you more about these two plants: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/star-of-bethlehem/star-of-bethlehem-plant-care.htm
Where can I find a houseplant called Bethlehem star? Can it be grown outdoors? Will it come back each year, if grown outdoors? If so, how deep do you plant it?
I have a star of bethlehem and the stem has grown too high. Do I cut he stem or will this kill the plant? Thanks
There should be no need to cut the stem, but if you must, it will probably not kill the plant due to its sturdy (invasive, in fact) nature.
This article provides some additional information on the Star of Bethlehem:
What is the easiest way to get rid of them. They have taken over our entire lawn. Thank you, Robert
Manually removing the bulb would be the safest method of removal and the only way to ensure you have all of the plant.
The bulbs are generally about 3 to 4 inches below the surface of the soil.
Use of herbicide 2, 4D is not very effective on Star Of Bethlehem. It will kill the top plant but does not generally kill the bulbs.
I purchase this plant and it had white flowers when I got it however it took a while before it was planted in a flower bed the stems of white flowers were very pretty and the scent was great how ever now the plant is dropping over and has yellow flowers that look like they are blooming from a seed pod. Is how it is suppose to grow?? Also after reading the articles on this plant I may dig it up and put in a container. If I do will the plant come back next year
This link will refresh you on the care requirements.
It does sound like yours developed a seed pod. You can remove it if you like and cut down the spent flower stems.
I cannot believe you wrote an article promoting this bulb/plant or even suggest planting in woodland. This plant is highly invasive and a nightmare to gardeners. It will take over your garden and lawn. You should take down this article so inexperienced gardeners don’t get sucked into planting this. I spend hours every year digging it up so it does not take over my flower beds!!!!!
Keeping this plant in a container does not stop it’s invasive behavior. If the seed heads are not deadheaded IMMEDIATELY, the seeds are in the wind and germinate EVERYWHERE! Do not plant this flower!
We do offer information regarding the invasive quality of Star of Bethlehem and offer suggestions for gardeners to keep the bulbs contained.
will it grow in a pot? what size?
Yes, easily planted into pots.
