On Monday I boght the 4 cyclamen pictured below, and was wondering they are the hardy variety.

They are a lot smaller than the huge flowered variety I bought in the Summer.




If in doubt, treat them as half-hardy

Most likely bedders, intended for pots and tubs outside in autumn through to winter - sold now, last until it gets really cold and then keel over. You can always keep the corms till next year, see if they grow again if you're not sure.

They're not C.hederifolium or C.coum which are the really hardy ones. I find this sort mostly come into flower again the following autumn.

They look like one of the smaller strains of Florist's Cyclamen (C. persicum), so consider them half-hardy, as Sheilar says.
