Found this little plant growing all by itself on a heavily wooded slope under a beech tree.
You’re welcome Stepphanie! Appreciate the confirmed ID and its aromatic character.!

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).
