These adorable little daisy-like flowers will brighten your warm-season mornings with sunny yellow color and the unmistakable scent of chocolate! The maroon center of the flower provides a perfect landing pad for the butterflies that flock to it for nectar. Native to northern Mexico, southeastern Arizona, and Texas; the hardy Chocolate Flower will tolerate temperatures as low as -30oF, often freezing to the ground in winter only to come back bigger and fuller next season. Though classified as a perennial, it can be grown anywhere as an annual, and will readily drop seeds that sprout into new plants in spring!
