Cyclamen cilicium 'Album' - 2016 (Cyclamen cilicium)

According to the website www.hardycyclamens.com:
"Cyclamen cilicium grow in the Taurus Mountains of southern Turkey, a part of the ancient kingdom of Cilicia, at elevations of 2300 to 6500 feet. It is found growing in coniferous forest among rocks and scree in shade or partial shade. C. cilicium is not as robust as hederifolium or coum and takes longer to establish in the open garden being not quite as hardy in severe winters. It readily self sows and a small colony can develop over time. It prefers growing in partial sun and needs some water during the summer months. Blooming in Autumn."

Have you got a small colony yet?

Not yet. It was planted in a trough two years ago, but has taken a little time to settle in and flower. Once I start to get some seedlings, I will move them to the open garden.
