The correctly named true species as what is generally seen in gardens are forms of Cardiocrinum giganteum.  The only deviation from the key of 3-5 flowers are some with up to 9 flowers which we attribute to easy living in our garden and variation within the species. This is most closely allied to C. cordatum from Japan, Sakhalin, and the Kuril Islands and has similarities in height at 4'-7' tall along with the distinctive grouping of leaves in the middle part of the flowering stem.  New growth in spring is a brilliant copper-red and non-flowering bulbs go dormant quite early in June.  White tepals are greenish-white at base with interior first touched in soft yellow-green and then deep within, purple.  And fragrant late in the day. These are small bulbs perhaps 3 years from flowering.  A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering,
