Heuchera ‘Caramel’

5 Photos


Heuchera ‘Caramel’ has developed a reputation with gardeners for its excellent habit, interesting color, and durability. Throughout our trial this reputation proved well-deserved. Fuzzy, peach colored leaves emerge in spring and slowly age to a pale orange-yellow. When grown under more sunlight the color can become increasingly yellow. Therefore, greater shade is needed for the best coloring ‘Caramel’ has to offer. In our sun trial, ‘Caramel’ experienced significant burning and discoloration, and is thus recommended for part shade – full shade conditions.
