Okay this is another time I really wished this forum had an edit feature. I hav two plants that resemble your plant, and somehow I morphed them together in my mind.

I am not sure what #2 is but I don't think it is purple heart, however if you want it, you are welcome to it. It is a gorgeous plant.

Your plant looks like this:

I have two regular purple hearts, and varigated versions of another purple plant (pics follow). I am so sorry I got excited and jumped the gun before I double-checked. I know that when you have your heart set on a plant it is amazing to find it :(.
