Sorry Flowering rose i cant see your reply

Might be orthinogalum, star of Bethlehem, which has 6 petals. I'm sorry your pic's quite small, so can't quite make it out.

I think it could well be, but if you't mind copying and pasting above link, then you could decide!

I agree the flowers look extremely similar however te follage doesnt appear to match however it could just be that mine are only in the first year of planting. Thanks for the replys

I thought star of Bethlehem were little multiheaded things. Is it still out Cairnsie. Can you count the petals? Looks like 4 to me but may not be.

The leaves aren't right for star of bethlehem.  I have tulips that look like this but unfortunately I didn't record the name.  There is a range of star shaped tulips which have these very long thin leaves.

I did buy dwarf tulips and i wonder if its just them as the follage is similar to my larger tulips. I just know i didnt by anything named star of bethlehem or Ornithogalum umbellatum but i did buy dwarf tulips

Found them http://www.nodiggardener.co.uk/2013/04/scruffy-bulbs.html if you scroll down to the white flowers thats definately them.

Think they're one of the small species tulips. I had some years ago but can't recall the name. Will look up book!
