From a round corm which sits just below the soil surface, these cute, rock garden-sized perennials burst forth in late fall with small, rounded, quarter-sized silver leaves. Cyclamen coum forms small clumps adorned in late winter (January, February in NC) with 4" tall flowers ranging from pink to purple. Cyclamen coum clumps go summer dormant and prefer to be very dry during this rest period. This can be accomplished by planting them under the canopy of conifers or large trees.
