'chocolate flower'...

vieja_gw(z7NM)October 6, 2013

I have a wildflower called by the common name of 'Chocolate Flower'; it smells just like chocolate (or really like cocoa to me) for the aroma the blooming yellow flowers give off! Believe it is a perennial but it seeds itself all over & so hardy & pretty. Berlandiera I believe it the real name... anyone else growing this?

I have it. It does well in my zone, too. Overwinters and reseeds itself. To me the fragrance is reminiscent of cocoa, but not quite the same.
