This seed strain of the winter hardy Cyclamen hederifolium has lovely pewter colored leaves, often edged in a faint pale green netting. The 6" tall purple dodecatheon-like flowers emerge in July and continue through fall, being joined in October by the foliage. Dry soils when the plants are dormant in late spring and summer is the key to success.
