Default what color is pex tubing for heating

hello all, what color is pex tubing for heating? and will it say so on the tubing? I thought it was orange, but someone said they had it installed and the plumber used red color pex tubing. thanks

I don't think colour is for function. It is only for convenience.

Red is used a lot. But you must get it for heating because of the temp. It is thicker and won't melt.
