Nature never fails to amuse us, and with these pretty and ‘yummy’ smelling flowers, it sure did raise the bar!
These red-hued flowers called Chocolate Cosmos, smell like chocolate chip cookies! They are very graceful, with velvety-red petals and have centres that are almost black.
There is a little debate there, as some people get a sense of red velvet cake, and some are reminded of rich chocolate and cookies; but one thing’s certain, it sure smells delicious!
Its botanical name is Cosmos Astrosanguineus, and they are native to Mexico. The flowers are fragile and really delicate.
They’ll surely turn any garden into a calorie-free sweet-treat.
While we sure love the sweet smell of roses and the soothing smell of lavender, Chocolate Cosmos really takes the cake. A chocolate cake that too!
