Name this Heuchera

I believe its Marmalade. I never made note of what it was but they are by far the best Heuchera cultivar I encountered.

The soil is very average, along with average moisture and they get around 9 hours of southwest/west exposure where most others perish.

Just want to nail down the cultivar before I get more.

They start out more caramel looking and get more purple as the season progresses.

They look damn nice next to conifers.

Could it possibly be 'Caramel'? IME, Marmalade has much more of an orange tint to it all year (and less of a purply violet underside), while Caramel does tend to green out, especially in much shade. And definitely features that purple underleaf.

Hmm, can see that but based on the images on google the leaves don't seem as crinkled.

RE: Name this Heuchera

I own "Caramel" and the leaves are definitely not that crinkled. Here's a picture of mine:

Yeah their not glossy either but the colors match!

I probably just have to order up a few. I stopped at the nursery and he said he doesn't have it and couldn't remember if he had it but could order it, lol.
