    I can't see teh full shape of the leaf so it's difficult to say for certain...BUT if this is a SPRINGTIME picture, then the fact that it is red and that I BELIEVE I can see enough leaf shape to determine that it is a red maple...

    bleeding heart plants have green leaves and the flowers are pink heart shaped blooms with a tear drop at the end of the heart....not sure what this is tho

    It kind of looks like a Coral Bells (Heuchera)

    It looks like African Rose Mallow to me. I can't make out the shape of the leaves too well though.

    Hard to see it but it looks like a coleus.

    This doesn't look like any coleus I've ever seen....I really wish Cheryl would post a second picture with the leaves spread out so we can fully see the shape...It's definately NOT bleeding heart...But Coral Bells ....well I'd have to look up what that is...Rose Mallow is I believe a form of hybisicus, and this is not it...It Looks Like a red maple that's been chopped down or mowed over until it has come back as a bushier form....

    Sharron I had coleus this color last year. There are many coleus varities. Many I have never seen here but have seen in gardening magazines. But, as I said, can't tell from the picture.

    Cheryll, you should see if your cousin can take a picture where the leaf shape is identifiable. It does look somewhat like a heuchera leaf as Shelley said.

    Well ya'll i posted photo's of the coral Bells and the Africian Rose Mallow in my previous posts, I can see why Shelly C thinks that it could be the coral Bells...but I can't believe that it's the rose mallow....even a different varity because it appears that the leaves are a different shape...but honestly since we can't see the full shape we can't really know with certainty.

    Looks like Heuchera to me. There are several varities and this is a redder one.

    I can't see it very well either, but the color and limpy leaves remind me of Perilla, maybe.
