Product Description

Cylcamen hederifolium, or ivy-leaved cyclamen, is a hardy perennial that will reward year after year with delicate but vibrantly coloured pink petals.

Not to be confused with indoor pot plant varieties, these wild cyclamen are a stunning garden plant for naturalising in shaded or semi-shaded areas, such as under trees and hedges, providing pretty autumn colour and subtle, long-lasting foliage interest.

They flower profusely in autumn; once established, the blooms appear straight from the ground before any leaves emerge. As they die back over winter, the striking silver-veined, mottled deep-green leaves linger until the warmth of the following spring.

As the plants mature, they will gradually spread out to form small clumps of up to 30 flowers and naturalise to create a delicate carpet of fully hardy, maintenance-free plants. They will flower each autumn, producing varying hues of pink as the tubers spread and mature.

They are perfect for filling awkward, shady spots or populating larger areas of dappled shade or woodland, and are drought tolerant once established.

Supplied as a pack of 3 bulbs of 13-15cm for planting from September to October, they will flower in October and November in their first year, and from September to November thereafter.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Keep the plants well-watered through the flowering season.
  • Leave the curly seed pods in place to promote self-seeding spread.

 

Care Guide

  • Mulch annually with well-rotted leaf mould or bark chips to prevent the tubers from drying out in summer and from severe winter cold.
  • Choose a sheltered location with at least some shade during the day.
  • Heavy soil should be opened up with horticultural grit or sharp sand as cyclamen need good drainage.
  • Plant bulbs 3-5cm deep, roots downwards, singly or in groups. Do not plant too deeply as this may suppress the flowering.
