Do you know what plant this is? I bought it in Berkeley, CA. I love it and want to by more but I have no idea what it is. I also don't have any care instructions.
Both pictures are the same plant trying to show different angles.

Its called Orange Star (Ornithogalum dubium). They should be easy to find at the grocery store this spring. I planted them in my garden in Oakdale (Zone 8), they took over. They did have a bit of protection from some shrubs but in Bakersfield, they would have no problem.
