Anyone know what this is?

I have a new plant that I bought at a yard sale that I can't remember what the lady told me it was. It was planted in the shade along with some Hostas. It has an egg shaped leaf and has yellow or pale green spots on it. I have tried to search for it but not having any luck. I know it doesnt help not having a pic but our camera is broke. Hoping to get it back soon then I could post a picture. Thanks in advance.


PS the leaves are also rough to tough.

RE: Anyone know what this is?

I'm not a flower person at all but your description sounds like "lungwort" (pulmonaria). In this picture the leaves are pointed but there are many varieties of lungwort from what I see at the garden nursery so maybe there is an egg shaped one as well:

Flower people will know much better though.
