I'm not an expert but it looks like Virginia Bluebells to me!

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.

Thanks! There was SO much of it I believe I coud easily wildcraft a bit of this into my garden with no impact on the native supply. Has anyone grown this?
