The Q&A Archives: Chocolate Roses

Question: I've recently heard of a new type of rose, called the chocolate rose. Apparently it has "chocolate"-colored petals. Do you know the name of this rose, and how common it is going to become at nurseries in the coming months?<br>

Answer: I could not locate this rose myself, so I spoke with Jolene Adams of the American Rose Society and she reported the following:<br><br>" I am aware of a rose named 'Hot Chocolate', grown in New Zealand. I do not think it is sold in the USA. You might try to contact the floral association "down under" and see if they can locate this rose for you."<br><br>You might also contact Lowe's Roses, 6 Sheffield Rd., Nashua, NH 03062, ph# 603-888-2214. These folks are very knowledgeable, and might be able to direct you.<br> <br>You could also try contacting the World Federation of Rose Societies, 46 Alexandra Rd., St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England, AL1 3AZ -- they are an umbrella group for national rose societies worldwide. <br><br>Sorry we couldn't be of more help!
