The silver-leaf forms of Cyclamen hederifolium are still some of the most highly prized leaf types. We have hand-selected these for their lovely pewter-silver leaves. The clumps emerge from their summer dormancy in September with 6" pink dodecatheon-like flowers. The leaves emerge as the flowering fades and remain attractive all winter, finally going to rest in late spring. We have found that a location at the base of a tree or shrub keeps them dry during the summer which is essential for survival in rainy climates.
