We all know just how comforting a warm cup of chocolate can be during the long, cold days of winter. 'Winter Chocolate' will warm you all year long starting in winter as it cloaks itself in soothing chocolate, chartreuse and golden hues that jump out against the grays and whites of winter. Soon, as the warmer weather of spring takes hold, its foliage, as it flushes new, adds creamy salmon and red new growth which changes to green and orange in summer just as soft lavender blooms line each of the plant's stems by mid July. Compact, evergreen, deer resistant and butterfly attractive, 'Winter Chocolate' is the sure way to warmth, serenity and year round interest in the landscape.
