  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moderately-fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: January to March
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Delicate pink or white flowers with upswept petals appear with the foliage from winter to early spring among rounded, silvery-green leaves with marbled markings. These diminutive cyclamen are perfect for naturalising around the base of deciduous trees and shrubs. Best in humus-rich, well-drained soil in partial shade, they make excellent companions for ferns and other shade-loving plants.

  • Garden care: Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted leaf mould around the crown of the plants in spring as the foliage starts to die back.
