If you're just starting out with Heuchera, this is a great choice for your first plant. Very nice color, sun or shade. Strong grower with a nice full form. Handles heat and humidity well.

Of all the Heucheras I've grown, 'Caramel' is the most reliable. I can count on it 365 days of the year! Year after year!

Looks good in my Zone 6 hot and humid summers. Looks good in my sometimes humid spring and fall. Looks good in my cold and frost/thaw winters.

It grows well every day of the year. I have 3 one-gallon plants of 'Caramel' that get morning sun and afternoon shade.

I've been very happy with this variety!

I will "3rd" the above comments - this variety is by far the best peach coral bell I have grown. Fast growing, undemanding, divides easily. Thrives in part sun in my zn 5 garden, with occasional supplemental watering (not irrigated) and rich soil, and has for years. I'm adding more of them. A 5 Star plant for sure!
