Cyclamen hederifolium AGM HP
The sight (and fragrance) of the Cyclamen Hederifolium brings a much-needed boost to the garden, at a time when most other flowers are looking more than sorry for themselves. Each slender stem carries a carefully furled bud that unwraps into a beautiful bright pink flower with shell-shaped petals. This cyclamen has a long flowering period before disappearing over the winter and into the summer - but not without leaving behind a pretty carpet of heart-shaped marbled leaves. It originates from the Mediterranean, so it is a surprise that they are equally happy to grow in shade as they are in sun. Flowers August to October. Height 8-12cm.
