You weren't expecting a picture of a flower, were you?
Introducing, Berlandiera lyrata aka the Chocolate Flower.
It doesn't look like chocolate, it looks like many of a bazillion other yellow flowers. Why is it called the Chocolate flower? It smells just exactly like cocoa! I'm not pulling your leg.
I was at my favorite local nursery, Natural Gardener, talking with one of their hyper competent staff members about yellow or orange flowers that the deer might not eat. I was on a mission this spring to help my friend, DD, find a low growing, full sun, perennial, deer resistant flower for her yard. It also needed to be yellow or orange. She, like me, has way too many pinks and purples, and was tired of falling back on Lantana to fulfill the color requirement.
Often, if a plant has a very strong scent, the deer will leave it alone. That rule doesn't always apply, or we in the Hill Country could plant our tomato plants without fences. I know I hate the scent of tomato plants, I guess the deer don't mind. I digress. After a while, my new friend at the nursery led me to the plant you see above. I laughed, "No way, it can't possibly smell like chocolate!" He ran his hand across the plant and held it up to my nose. I could not believe what I was smelling! The scent lingered in the air. I was hooked. I bought two.
To test the deer resistant theory, so as not to disappoint DD, I let the plants go through several watering cycles before I moved on to the next stage. My nursery buddy said deer will eat anything that is newly planted from a quality nursery---they are attracted to the nitrogen smell in the dirt. Go figure? Once my watering thing was complete, I planted it in my front bed near my rosemary and lantana. It was gone the next morning. Apparently, the deer like chocolate too.
Sorry DD, since the deer would have eaten it at your house, I planted the second one in my fenced area in the backyard.
