Hi everyone,

I have a wild plant at my balcony garden which has since grown over the couple of years. I noticed it had two different shapes of leaves. I first thought it was an ash tree but I'm not sure. Most leaves are pointy but some on the top are slightly heart shaped. Thanks in advance.

I think the heart-shaped leaves may just be damaged.

I agree They look damaged. Sometimes a fungus causes leaves to be deformed.
