Weed, Insect and Disease Control
Star-of-Bethlehem (Ornithogalum umbellatum) is a perennial ornamental plant that has become a troublesome weed on golf courses, athletic fields and home lawns throughout Tennessee. It is often confused with wild garlic (Allium vineale) and wild onion (Allium canadense); however, Star-of-Bethlehem is more difficult to control with herbicides than these species. Non-selective herbicides like glyphosate (Roundup Pro™) often provide only marginal levels of control.
