This is my entry for the contest and since the leaf is heart shaped it works for Valentines as well. These heuchera plants are types of coral bells that are now being developed just for the varying leaf colors to use as accents in the garden. The flowers are inconsequential. This one was quite spectacular as the the stems are red as well. I'm sure it got its name from the fact that this looks like blood veins going to a heart.

It really looks bloodstained !! Unusual color and a very good shot of the blood red leaf. Good luck in the contest Kathy.
