Plant Overview

Cyclamen hederifolium is often the first sign of Autumn when its charming pink flowers push their way above ground in late August and continues to flower all winter and through spring. Various shades of pink flowers darken red as the blooms age.

Hederifolium is the easiest species to grow as it will withstand extreme cold and frozen conditions in winter and high temperatures and drought in summer, when it is protected by its dormancy.

Cylamen prefer light shade and are perfect for planting under deciduous shrubs and trees, in the ground or in a container.

Awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
