Ox Heart is very commonly used as a class name for the large, meaty varieties of cherries which are cordate in shape.
It has been perpetuated in cordate, not in dactylate characters.
The leaves are cordate, and bluntly three or five lobed, a little downy beneath, but smooth above.
It may also be distinguished by the appendage in the notch, which is cordate in form, and flat.
The lower leaves are ovate, cordate at the base, blunt, often eight or nine inches long; and the upper ones narrow and pointed.
The leaves are simple and cordate; and they do not appear till the flowers have faded.
The lower leaves, too, are oblong and stalked, while the upper ones are cordate and half clasp the stem.
The leaves are simple, cordate, opposite to each other, and furnished with stipules.
The leaves are ovate or cordate, deeply and regularly toothed.
A whole leaf-blade may be cordate, or the term may be applied to the base of a leaf only.
