If you're thinking...oh, another DYC (damn yellow composite)...you couldn't be more wrong. This splendid chocolate flower species can be found growing in sandy soils, open fields, and along forest edges from SC west to east central Texas, but is virtually unknown by the horticultural world. Berlandiera 'Chocoholic' is our 2019 introduction of a seed strain from Lee Co. Texas that makes a tight clump of sturdy 3' tall upright, light green stems adorned with widely spaced, 3" long, wavy, light green leaves. The stems are topped from May-September with clusters of 2" yellow daisies that emit a delicious fragrance of chocolate...especially in the morning. Berlandiera pumila 'Chocoholic' has proven to be the easiest of the chocolate flower species to grow in our trials.
