Yes it really is chocolate scented!
Originally from Mexico but now extinct in the wild, this is a spectacular flower with a spectacular scent. The rich velvety colours range from red to almost black, with chocolate shades somewhere in the middle. The aroma is definitely something to die for: sometimes chocolate, sometimes maybe more like vanilla. Though the flowers are not edible the aroma makes them a totally fun and novel garnish for desserts! Flowers from early summer right up to the autumn frosts. Ht. 45-60cm/18-24"
