This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: October to November
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    With their pretty, marbled, heart-shaped leaves and upright, pure white flowers, these cyclamen have a long season of interest before disappearing below ground over the summer. The flowers of this autumn-flowering cyclamen often appear well before the leaves, which form a pretty carpet after the flowers have finished. Plant them en-masse in an woodland setting with ferns and other shade-tolerant plants or around the base of deciduous trees.

  • Garden care: Plant shallowly in humus-rich, fertile soil. Apply a mulch of well-rotted leafmould around the crown of the plants in spring as the foliage starts to die back.
