Question by lala: Plant looks like hosta with a pink & a blue flower on same stem. and spreads like crazy. What is it?

Do not have a picture. These belonged to my friends daughter. Don’t know her well enough, but may ask her to send me a picture. Thanks. The leaves on this plant are green, with dark green bloches all over leaf. Sort of reminds me of a berber daisy. That’s what I thought it was at first.
This plant is not a vine, nor is it viney. It grows similar to a hosta. Although not as big as some hostas get. the spots are a darker green than the leaves. It’s not lungwort. I should have said it reseeds itself, it doesn’t spread like a vine. It is approx 12-16 inches tall. I’m wondering if it is some sort of hosta.

    Not being Psychic it’s not possible to do without a photo. Can you re-post with a photo?

    sounds like a Pulmonaria, they can have plain, spotted or patterned leaves. some varieties have pink flowers that age to blue and that gives the two coloured flower on the one perennial effect. The grow in shade, semi shade.

    i think you may be seeing a ‘lung wort’. yes, a strange name for sure. mine has spotted leaves in shades of green and first thing in the spring these beautiful little flowers in pink, purple and blue appear. a perfect delight after the long cold winter to see these pretty rainbow of flowers. they like a little extra shade and miracid in the spring and fall is a plus. get some. you’ll be glad you did!
