Description Fine Print
 
Cosmos atrosanguineus is a Mexican species with rich, dark maroon, dahlia-like flowers with the fragrance of chocolate! Que rica! How can you resist? Combine with peanut butter plant (Melianthus major) to turn your garden bed into a Reese's peanut butter cup. Yum! 'Choca Mocha' is more compact and has a more intense chocolate fragrance than the normal form. This species is classed as zone 7-9 but I would recommend a winter mulch and dry well-drained soil. Extinct in the wild. Que lastima!
