Need help with ID....pretty please!

I posted a few pics in the Gallery of a plant I was gifted with...the gal that gave it to my husband to give to me said it was a Hosta, but I'm thinking not. Either that or my DH heard her wrong! The leaves are much to thick and it sure looks like it was a runner from a mother plant. The runner is about a 10" long and thick. It looks very familiar and I probably learned it in my plant ID classes at school, but just can't place it now. I really need to know how much it 'runs' and if it does is it slow and easy to maintain. She gave it to me to add to my shade area that I've been working on and this area is not big enough to accomidate a thug!

Please take a look!

Thanks,

Vera

Ok...I took some better pics this morning; much clearer images. I'll just post them right here in this thread. Thanks in advance.
The roots beneath the plant are fiberous and the rhizome extends from the crown.

Is this just a really thick leaved Hosta?

better?

Are you seeing blurry images? I have this new accelerator downloaded from my ISP. In order to pick up the speed then the images in the brower are poor. I can re-set as I like, but didn't realize I had to keep the "original image" qualitity while uploading.

Sorry, let me try again.

Ok. It's Bergenia cordifolia. I planted it in front of the Foxglove :D
