Hot Cocoa™

Mysterious, indescribable, elusive…whatever! There’s just no other rose color quite like this. Pointed buds of deep rust unfurl to reveal a chocolate haze of velvety smoked tones that can even take on a purply cast. Set against gobs of glossy foliage, the ruffled fragrant flowers are mirrored by super-green leaves. Easy vigor and natural disease-resistance make it a must for every garden. Keeps on smokin’ even when the weather turns warm.
