The flowers are as the name suggests a chocolate scented maroon crimson. They are complimented by the unmistakable scent of chocolate and are very hardy in the garden. A very attractive variety that can be left over winter and will multiply well in most gardens. Easy to grow, prefers partial shade and will naturalise well. Remember to feed with bonemeal or something similar during the leaf and flowering stage to ensure they grow and bulk up well for subsequent years growth. In cold winters mulch well over winter to protect from the severe frosts.
