Is there a flower that really smells like chocolate?
Yes! This fashionable flower has striking dark red-purple tones that make it appear almost black. These dusky, 5 cm blooms are supported by reddish-brown stems and set off by clean green leaves. As for that tantalizing chocolaty scent, it attracts all kinds of pollinators, but deer find it unappetizing.Cosmos atrosanguineus
