This is Mertensia virginica, also known as Virginia Bluebells, Virginia Cowslip, Roanoke bells, and Lungwort Oysterleaf. Mertensia virginica is a native North American nectar source. This perennial likes to live in full shade but will tolerate a spot where it at least gets partial shade. The beautiful bell shaped flowers burst to life in the middle of Spring. Bees, birds, butterflies, and many nectar loving insects absolutely adore this plant. The leaves and flowers are edible and they are often used in salads or stir frys. If you grow this plant, Sphinx moths and hummingbird moths will be lured into your garden this Spring. USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 9
