Description Fine Print
 
Like chocolate cosmos (Cosmos atrosanguineus), this much hardier (to zone 4!) chocolate flower (Berlandiera lyrata) also smells distinctly like chocolate. It forms masses of yellow daisies from spring until fall on upright or mounding plants. It is night-blooming with fragrance turning on in the evening, lasting all night, and reaching its strongest scent in mid morning before the petals fall when you're having a lovely breakfast on the patio. Interestingly the stamens are edible and have a chocolate flavour. Pretty green discs are left behind once the petals fall but it is best to deadhead to encourage continuous bloom. Hot, dry, sunny spots.
