Lovely, 3" blooms smell like--and are the colour of--chocolate! Velvety, chocolate-red petals encircle yellow centres. Tall stems hold these somewhat nodding flowers high above the plant's foliage, where they are a beacon for pollinators. We're thrilled to be able to offer this hard-to-find variety!
