Product Description

Chocolate Blooms with a Sweet Fragrance! This new All-America Rose Selection winner is a completely new color breakthrough! Plant Patent 15,155. Cultivar name: 'WEKpaltlez'. This Rose is so uniquely colored that we may just have to invent a new name for the color of its lusciously ruffled blooms! A chocolate-brown infused with smoke and hints of purple . . . or perhaps a russet-influenced brick-red . . . There is no way to do justice to these sweetly fragrant, freely borne blossoms! Hot Cocoa™ is the new All-America Rose Selection winner, and one glance will tell you that the Rose world will never be the same again! The flowers are 3 1/2 inches wide, packed with petals and boasting merrily ruffled edges that add depth to their show. They arise from long, pinpoint buds of a deep rust color (glamorous enough all by themselves!) all over this Floribunda shrub. The flowering begins in late spring and continues until fall, with bright green foliage framing the rich blossoms. Very vigorous and resistant to disease, Hot Cocoa™ would be a super garden presence even if its blooms weren't so spectacular. As it is, though, this is an entirely new color breakthrough that you won't want to miss enjoying in your own border, Rose garden, or perennial bed. Hot Cocoa™ reaches 5 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide, and demonstrates a great cold hardiness northern gardeners will appreciate (yet also thrives through zone 9 in the south!). The flowers are exquisite in the garden and vase. And if you're ready to start exhibiting your Roses, why not begin with a flourish with this showstopper? Space shrubs 3 feet apart in moist, well-enriched soil receiving full sun. Zones 5-9.
  • Chocolate Blooms with a Sweet Fragrance

    I am always on the lookout for unique plants, especially roses. I bought one Hot Cocoa and one Cinco de Mayo at the beginning of summer and patiently waited for them to bloom. I was so excited to see the Hot Cocoa coloring, although I would say it is more of an orange tone than brown. Not a harsh, neon orange, but a unique warm, Coral-ish orange. It fades to a redder-rust tone. Keep in mind this was during the hottest days, so I’ll update if it differs in cooler months. However you describe the coloring, it stands out from the rest. Between Cinco de Mayo (I’d describe as more reddish orange, with undertones of magenta—-have to see it in person) and Hot Cocoa, your neighbors will be complimenting. You need one of these, but you will want more! (Trust me, before they sell out again)

    The plant arrived healthy with 2 other roses I had ordered. The only complaint is that they were all tightly packed and some branches were bent.
