Mertensia virginica
Virginia Bluebells

Virginia Bluebells is one of the more common wildflowers that is found in urban gardens, becoming sprawling with age and dying back to the crown by mid-Summer. This wildflower is excellent for naturalizing in shady areas of the landscape border, as it freely seeds itself and forms colonies within a few years. Its "bulb" resembles a carrot-shaped vertical tuber.
