Cyclamen hederifolium ‘Silver Leaf Pink’
at Digging Dog


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 hederifolium ‘Silver Leaf Pink’ partial shade

With dainty pink blooms poised above, a silver effulgence splashes across the surface of each polished, prominently veined leaf in a unique fashion, sometimes concealing any sign of greenery, while rich wine hues warm the undersides. Place ‘Silver Leaf Pink’ beneath Elaeagnus ‘Quicksilver’ to enhance the elegant frosty display.

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