Cyclamen

Hardy Cyclamen

One of the easiest and showiest Cyclamen species for the garden, the hederifolium have marbled foliage and dramatic blossoms that make an inviting ground-level attraction beneath a mature deciduous tree. After pointed buds rise from established tubers, glorious blooms composed of five reflexing petals emerge. As the downward-facing flowers fade and seeds form, spent stems spiral earthward, thus earning its Greek derivation from cyclo or circle.

Clusters of overlapping, 4 to 6 in. heart-shaped lustrous leaves, each intricately etched with pewter, persist all winter, dying back in late spring. Provide the following cultural requirements: good drainage, protection from the sun, a lime amendment, minimal summer water, and a deep planting where winters are cold; you’ll be rewarded with a happy stand of these garden gems.

Cyclamen coum partial shade

A joy in their own right, copious rounded shiny dark green leaves embellished with intricate silver markings make a lovely fall and wintertime display. Lolling on slender stems, a colorful flood of enchanting blooms ranging from soft pinks to rich carmine shades add further enticements. This long-lived AGM winning perennial is undaunted by dry shade, appreciates an annual mulch and spreads slowly to form a substantial clump.

Blooms February–March.

Size: 6"–8" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
