The Ornithogalum Nutans is a very, very rare flower which grows in a big circle in the Orchard field opposite Dixies.  It is a pale green in colour, and blooms about Easter time.

An old legend says that this particular flower only grows where Danish blood has been spilt.  Mr Cooper always used to protect the Ornithogalum Nutans with a fence during the time that it was flowering.
