    Boasting sumptuous, velvety cherry-hued blooms atop lance-shaped, blue-green foliage, ‘Cherry Chocolate’ is a standout in any sunny border, offering a striking contrast when paired with other vibrant hues. Awarded second place as Plant of the Year by the RHS at the Chelsea Flower Show 2024, this variety features the largest flowers among atrosanguineus cultivars, measuring 7cm (3in) across. Its allure is further enhanced by its chocolate fragrance emanating from its blooms, enticing both humans and pollinators alike. To safeguard against frost damage, consider protecting its tuberous roots with a cloche or overwintering in a frost-free environment, ensuring its beauty for seasons to come.


  • Garden care:
    In autumn after the foliage has died back reduce the stems to within 5cm (2in) of the roots. Lay in a tray of soil or compost and over-winter in a frost-free environment until early spring.
