The Caramel Coral Bells (Heuchera 'Caramel') has unique and glowing caramel-orange foliage on a vigorous growing plant. The clump-forming perennial grows into a mound, requiring very little maintenance! Perfect for the busy or novice gardener. The unusual color melds beautifully among orange and yellow flowers and is eye-catching, to say the least!

The improvements on this 'Caramel' must be seen to be appreciated, with features of creamy colors and rosy, brown sugar highlights! The foliage is one of the best features of Coral Bells, as the leaves are large, heart-shaped, and rounded, with striking colors and variegation patterns.

The small blooms that the Caramel Coral Bells display in the early Summer will attract Hummingbirds and butterflies. Tiny creamy white, bell-shaped flowers are lifted above the wispy stems, up to a height of 18 inches. Caramel thrives in heat and humidity and is one of the hardiest of all the Coral Bells.

Planting and Application:

Particularly showy when planted as a specimen garden among the vibrant colors of other Coral Bells! Try creating a focal point planting in your garden by clustering these in a grouping of 3 or more for a stand-out accent! Growing to create a low-maintenance groundcover.

Seating areas, birdbaths, outdoor sculptures, and urns become the main feature with a skirting of these around their base. Colorful additions to ornamental containers on shady patios, even balcony gardeners can enjoy these brilliant plants! Fringe trees or encircle large shrubs while benefitting from their shade. They'll provide facer plantings to hide their bare stems while calling butterflies and hummingbirds galore.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Like most Coral Bells, Caramel thrives in partial sunlight but once established it will also grow in shade. Maintain consistent moisture and well-drained, enriched soil when grown in full sun. In the hottest of their favorite growing zones 4 to 9, this variety will appreciate some afternoon shade. If you use these Perennials in full sun, be sure to water well and add a 3-4 inch thick layer of mulch at the root zones. This Heuchera variety is pest resistant, typically ignored by deer and rabbits, as well as disease free! For the best growth, it's recommended to divide the clumps every few years, in the spring, in the spring and prune back winter die-back in early spring as well.

  • Vigorous & Hardy in Full Sun, Some Afternoon Shade
  • Moderate Moisture Needs & Well-Drained Soil
  • Prune Early Spring
  • Easy Care & Drought Tolerant
  • Takes Cold, Heat & Humidity
