Berlandiera lyrata, commonly called chocolate flower (also known as lyreleaf green eyes) is native to dry sandy loams, rocky limestone soils, mesas, plains, grasslands and roadsides in Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Mexico.
It typically grows to up to 60 cm tall on branched, usually erect but sometimes decumbent stems, and features aromatic, night blooming, daisy-like flowers (3-5 cm diameter) with yellow rays, maroon-brown center discs and green cup-like bracts. Flowers appear on leafless stems. Yellow rays have red veins (sometimes entirely red) on the reverse side.
Leaves are deep green above and whitish below, with irregular pinnate lobes. Flowers bloom at night from late spring to frost, but in frost free areas will bloom year round.
Flowers smell like chocolate, with the aroma being most noticeable in early to mid-morning before the petals close up or drop.
Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates some light shade. Prefers slightly alkaline soils. Good tolerance for heat and drought. May produce more flowers with consistent moisture, but at the cost of stem-drooping.
May self-seed in the garden. Easily grown from seed.
