We’d like to sing the praises of the amazing Cyclamen coum. Here are photos from the garden today. These start flowering for us in mid-February and continue until April, after which time, they go summer dormant, re-emerging in fall. The secret to success is to plant them near trees/shrubs where they will remain dry in the summer.
A white-flowered Cyclamen coum. Cyclamen are grown from seed, so each plants is slightly different including flower color.
A lovely solid silver-leaf Cyclamen coum. How many folks already enjoy these winter-flowering gems in the garden?
I have lots of these in my garden in Vermont and many more coming along in seed pots. I do love them for early spring color.
I just purchased two to plant under my spruce trees. Can’t wait to see them next spring!
