This just showed up, which makes me think it may be a native plant of some type. The leaves are pretty distinctive, hoping someone will recognize it. I've looked all through my local field guide, with no luck.Growing in part-shade. Thanks.

Maybe Cardamine or Dentaria? Cardamine nuttallii looks close, but it's hard to get a good match for the lower leaves. In some images they look similar but in others not so much.

Maybe Cardamine angulata? Not sure about the flower clusters though. It is native in my area, so makes a bit of sense. I'll keep looking at cardamines, I think that is the right track.

Another possibility is P. pulcherrima.
