Flowers seen at a flower shop.

Seems from the Alliaceae family.


May be Allium or related genera ?


I searched in Allium but can’t find a match.


Flowers are close to Allium nigrum, but the black portion is confusing me.


Please check Ornithogalum arabicum or Ornithogalum saundersiae.


You got them right.

Ornithogalum saundersiae looks more closer to my picture.
