Cyclamen, oh my mum does like a nice cyclamen at Christmas, its her bday soon too so I expect to buy her one.
Cyclamen colours are red dark pinks pale pinks and white my favourite is a dark pink
These plants look very attractive as a winter table decoration.
Cover the corm lightly with soil so its tip is just showing and water it and you should grow your own cyclamen successfully.There are several species of cyclamen the one that is pot grow for indoor display is usually Cyclamen persicum. There are other species more suitable for outdoor growth flowering autumn to spring time. These look lovely naturalised in grass with snowdrops. They are not too fussy about soil and grow impartial shade. Colours are white pale pink to darker pinks.
The flowers on an outside cyclamen are smaller than the pot indoor plant.
I have seen cyclamen growing wild in Greece and turkey a beautiful sight. The word cyclamen is derived from Greek. The wild flowers are a getting rarer so make sure you buy your plants from a reputable firm that does not collect from the wild.
