    Thanks so much – I agree with serotonin – it did have a spicy odor I did not identify but definitely not lemon.

    Oops, it should be: Collinsonia serotina not ‘serontina’. So sorry!

    I think the ‘bell shape’ is calyx? Maybe a species in the Cosllinsonia genus? If this is of the genus, leaves and flowers should have a lemony fragrant. Sorry, I can’t tell which species this is. Check out two species the C. serontina & C. canadensis from these included links below. Best wishes!
    Link for Collinsonia canadensis (Richweed).
