Cyclamen hederifolium,(a.k.a. neapolitanum) come in many shades of pink and, in the wild (S. Europe & Mediterranean regions), the white form is very rare. However, in British gardens, The white var. grows more strongly and spreads more rapidly than the typical form. I don't know the reason for this 'botanical mystery'. I wonder if anyone else does.
