Perennial Cultivation: Plant Chocolate Flowers in full sun in well drained soil. Since the "Chocolate Flower" is a native plant it adapts to most soil types well. The flower has a slight chocolate fragrance, hence its name. Chocolate Flower is very drought tolerant.

Berlandiera seed can be planted directly in the ground once danger of hard frost has passed. Wild plants can be relocated from private property in the spring. For best results purchase pre-started Chocolate Flower plants at your local Garden Center.
