Rich deep maroon flower heads with slightly darker brown disk florets have a delicious chocolate scent when the flowers are rubbed! Blooms in late summer. The flowers look elegant when planted with gray foliage plants and yellow blooms. The habit of the plant is somewhat spreading with reddish brown stems and coarsely cut dark green foliage to 2 feet. In colder climates dig the tubers out at the end of the season, like dahlias. Give this plant well drained soil to promote vigorous growth and assure that plants will come back after winter.
