It looks like the plant thats in Van Dycks's catalog called
Virginia Blue Bells(mertensia virginica)" A pernnel blooming in April-May,its nodding clusters of pink buds open to dainty procelain blue flowers, 18" tall" I hope this helps. Here is the web address, I hope this comes out as a hyperlink, so far I haven't had any luck.It worked.
