mystery plant - fringe cup

I believe the plant to be a fringe-cup (Tellima grandiflora) or similar. This native of NW America has naturalised widely in woods and damp hedgerows.

I thought the same thing!

Someone else put a photo of Tellima up very recently - it does look very similar.

Mystery Flower - Fringe bells or Fringe cup

Thanks to everyone who identified -Im impressed with the response!
My colleague identified it in Rose a few hours later, where I had missed it.
Next time I will try and be more challenging rather than myopic.
