What is Anemone nikoensis

Anemone nikoensis or Ichirin-sou(scientific name: Anemone nikoensis), also known as spring ephemeral, is a cold-resistant perennial herb (lodging plant) of the genus Anemone (Ranunculaceae) native to Japan that flowers in early spring. It grows in colonies on forest floors and forest margins from Honshu to Kyushu. The plant is 20 to 30 cm tall. The stem leaves are sheath-like with three lobes and deeply pinnately lobed. From mid-April to mid-May, a single white flower (about 4 cm in diameter) blooms at the tip of the flower stalk (some have two flowers). The flower has five to six sepals, numerous stamens, and multiple pistils. However, what looks like a white flower is not a flower but a calyx.
