help me identify this plant!

Posted by difranco2k7 SW Arkansas, NE Tex (My Page) on

I have searched everywhere for hours and cannot find an exact match. Its almost 3 feet and has 2 separate trunks. The leaves are cordate, perfectly heart shaped, blood red, but greener at the bottom.Trunk is fuzzy and leaves seem to grow symmetrically across from another. They also have solid burgundy flower spikes but have fallen ( similar looking to a Coleus flower spike). Can anyone help. And if so how hardy is it in SW Arkansas or Dallas?

It may be a Perilla. Are the stems square?
