About plant names...

Heuchera ‘Caramel’ is a cultivar that is not found in the wild, but it is derived from Heuchera villosa, which is a native of southeastern North America.

Identification: Plants are 9-18" (22-45 cm) high, and 12-24" (30-60 cm) wide. This cultivar has unusual orange-yellow (“honey-apricot,” according to one description) leaves. Flowers are light pink. This variety tolerates heat and humidity better than most Heucheras.
