Cardiocrinum cordatum (Thunb.) MakinoFamily: Liliaceae
Japanese: ウバユリ (姥百合) [Uba Yuri]
I'm told this is a super-common plant in other parts of Japan, and Wikipedia lists several references indicating that it is naturalized in Maryland, USA. However, it seems that the deer have a penchant for it, and I only know of this one specimen in Kosugidani. In 2015-2016, the deer population in this particular area shrank, and it bloomed beautifully for about a week. In 2019, two stalks bloomed.
