I picked them up at a neighborhood plant exchange and stuck them in one of the worst areas of my garden! Now that I know what they are I'm going to move them and baby them - though they've done well on neglect (except for the not blooming part ;) @lesliecole49

that darker shiny leaf looks like 'lungwort'... If it's not the same as the others... Other than that I'm not sure.

Thanks @gardennut I don't think it's a lungwort because when those mottled stems aren't flopping it's pretty tall. :)
