You have the really beautiful blue ones, which are native. I'd love to get some of those! :>)

Around my area the native Cyclamen is pink.
I had a look on line for the blue ones.....they are gorgeous and not far from where I live. I see myself going for a drive tomorrow. ;o)))))

I know you posted some pics of the blue ones last year. I had never seen blue ones before. I have never seen a blue cyclamen sold here, ever.
