More... I Heart You

It started with a couple of hosta leaves I Heart You . Then I started noticing more heart shaped leaves and realized the garden is full of hearts! Common leaf shape you say... I agree and love them all the same.

Top to bottom, left to right - dutchman's pipe, lamium, morning glory, brunnera 'jack frost, coleus, oops brunnera again, sweet potato vine, mulberry, another sweet potato vine.

I love heart shaped leaves, especially Brunnera. They look good in a mixed bed, because they are substantial, and a nice contrast to other foliage. I like to pair them next to long, slender leaves, like Pulmonaria, or next to lacy ferns. You have a good assortment of different colours of hearts too.
