 Merrybells (Uvularia grandiflora) is a plant native to Eastern North America. It blooms early in spring around the same time as crocuses. I really like the swish to the yellow flowers that hang down. They remind me of long skirts, maybe Hawaiian skirts, moving to dance music.

 Every petal has a bit of a twist to it as well as the whole flower curving to the side. 

 Merrybells is a very easy to grow, tough perennial that forms a slowly spreading clump.  After the flowers face, the leaves grow bigger forming a pleasant mound of  curving green .  The clumps can be divided spring or fall.
