Cyclamen are like Snowflakes

Cyclamen hederifolium is a great addition to the winter garden. They begin flowering in late fall/early winter before the foliage. When foliage emerges it will remain during the winter. The foliage is quite dramatic with intricate patterning of silver and shades of green. Most hardy cyclamen are grown from seed, so like snowflakes, no two are alike.

Here are some of the cyclamen growing in our crevice garden. Notice the variation in variegation, leaf shape, and differences in flower color.

  1. I wish that when you talk about a plant you would give the USDA hardiness zone for the plant. I don’t want to get excited about a plant just to find that it’s not hardy in my area.
