Chocolate Daisy just starting to bloom in April  
Beneficial wasp feeds on Chocolate Daisy nectar.  


  • Chocolate Flower Berlandiera lyrata

    With its grey dandelion shaped foliage, and its yellow wild   daisy shaped flowers are anything but unique. This is definitely a "weedy" and homely looking plant. So why would you want it?  I'll tell you why, this little weed has a secret and that is its fragrance. Yes, you guessed it! The flowers smell just like chocolate! Extremely hardy! A small plant with an airy habit, Chocolate Scented Daisy (sometimes called Chocolate Flower) makes a nice, informal edging plant, and is most impressive and most fragrant when planted in groups.
