These plants were planted in the flower bed of my new home when I moved in. Can anybody tell me what they are?

Thanks for the reply, porkpal. I looked Ajuga up and do not think that is it.

Could also Bergenia, some have reddish foliage especially in cold weather, B purpurascens var delavayi, or some type of B cordifolia perhaps

Thanks Calif_sue. Looks like I will read some more on the Bergenia. I am still in planning stages to see what I will be putting in the garden.
Have a great day all!
