Ber­landiera lyrata

Open­ing at night, the un­usual cho­co­late-scented yel­low flow­ers fea­ture a dark­rimmed cen­tre.

B. lyrata has a long flow­er­ing sea­son and suits a sunny po­si­tion at the front of the bor­der. HxS: 1½ftx2ft (45x60cm).

Cos­mos atrosan­guineus

A tuber­ous, spread­ing peren­nial with dark-red scented flow­ers, the cho­co­late cos­mos thrives in a sunny spot. Mulch in au­tumn and, in colder ar­eas, lift and store over win­ter to pro­tect from frosts. HxS: 30in­x1ft (75x30cm).
