Hardy Cyclamen


Hardy Cyclamen

Possibly my favorite plant. Unfortunately I am not very successful in growing them. I keep buying and they keep disappearing.

This one has a pretty bicoloured flower, Klahanie. I have several dotted around and sometimes I lose the odd one..not sure why? Being eaten maybe?

What a shame I seems to remember an elderly chap telling me mice like the corms perhaps thats why yours disappear , I have one this colour ...

This is Cyclamen persicum and it is only hardy in mild areas. I grow them in pots and put them in shelter for the coldest months.
It's a very pretty colour.

No that looks like persicum to me. C hederifolium seems to be hardier. I can grow it in my garden but not persicum.

I am sorry to say I agree with Hywel that it's not hardy hederifolium.
