Eranthis pinnatifida / Setsubunsou セツブンソウ

 
Eranthis pinnatifolia is what is called a spring ephemeral that sprouts in late autumn to wintertime, rapidly grows, blooms in February, and dies back in late spring. It is found in the deciduous tree forest in a limestone district, making up a population. The white petal-looking matters are sepals. One to 1.5cm petals are aperture, and the tips are turning into yellow nectar glands. A few plants of pink-color form exist among those tens of hundreds of white flowers. Bloom time: February-March.
