Description:

Chocolate scent, blooms in morning closes in afternoon, showy, flowers dry to brown seed. Plant Select® award winner.


Garden Notes: This is one of my favorite Panhandle Natives. My yard in the mornings will often be filled with the scent of chocolate thanks to this plant. Keep Chocolate Flower on the dry , lean side. Too much water and too rich soil can cause it to grow too fast. It will then lose it's natural mounding shape and be a large flowering clump. (Not all bad, just not quite as nice) It can be cut back in the middle of the growing season to get it back into shape.
