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 -- but always totally delicious! Flowers from early summer right up to the autumn frosts. Ht. 45-60cm/18-24"
