Ornithogalum sintenisii

Family hyacinthaceae
Life cycle perennial bulb
Flowers white (early spring)
Size 4"
Light sun-part shade

This Mediterranean plant carries starry white flowers on short stems. Pacific Bulb Society only notes that it is hardy "at least to 20F" (that doesn't do me much good in zone 6), but the seed came from a Philadelphia-area gardener, so I'm hopeful it may prove hardy.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
