I love this plant and will are buying more. It looks great, grows large, and has beautiful color changers throughout the growing season. The only problem you may have with this heuchera is not realizing it will grow much larger than your other heucheras. But it is worth using in spots all alone because of its beauty.
- Peach & purple leaves in a neat mound
- Tiny white flowers in summer
- Excellent contrast to green foliage plants
Heuchera 'Caramel' has glowing bright yellow-orange leaves with purple red undersides. It forms a nice vigorous clump of mounded leaves. Like most Heucheras, 'Caramel' is grown mainly for its foliage but it does produce creamy white flowers in mid summer. Stunning in fall combination planters! U.S. native.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Coral Bells prefer moist, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil. Amend with compost before planting. They will take sun or partial shade, though afternoon shade is required in hot regions to prevent leaf scorch. In cold climates, mulch well, after the ground freezes. If the plants heave due to frost, carefully press back into place in spring. Heucheras generally need to be divided and replanted every 3 years, burying the woody rootstock and keeping the crowns above the soil surface.
