I’m so miffed when the colour on my photo doesn’t match the real thing 😢 #rose-hot chocolate is not pink at all but a gorgeous dusky red, almost rust. It’s very unusual! #mygardentoday 07/06/2018

I bought thus from gardeners world show last yr but it doesn't smell like chocolate at all does yours @jacaranda ? And I agree with u about the colour...

It’s annoying when the camera doesn’t pick the colour up! Still beautiful though! ❤️

It has a very light fragrance, Christine, but not chocolatey 😢 @brighton

Any advice on how to get an accurate colour, Rachel? Your photos are always so inspiring but I know you have a super-duper camera and I’m only using my iPhone or iPad so I might be asking too much 🤣 @rachelbrooks

Aww thank you lovely ☺️ To be honest for close ups I always use my phone! Red is notoriously difficult to capture, even on a ‘proper’ camera! And some purples! Something to do with how the camera reads it I think 🤔 so I just keep trying! 😘
