I found this plant blooming at the edge of our woods in early May. It is in an area that gets mostly afternoon sun.It has beautiful tubular-shaped, small, purple and white flowers on spikes. The entire plant is approximately 2 feet high. The leaves are eliptical and about 1 to 1.5 inches long.

    This looks a bit like a penstemon. It may be a variety or one of that family? Not totally sure.
