These exquisite little gems of the rock garden burst forth in late fall with small, rounded, quarter-sized leaves of black-green...occasionally patterned with dramatic silver markings. They are joined in late winter (January, February in NC) by the 2" tall flowers ranging from pink to purple. Be sure to mark the clumps, because at the onset of hot weather the entire clump goes dormant for the summer. Plant under the branches of a large tree or shrub to ensure that the corms stay dry in the summer. Cyclamen coum was named by the Royal Horticultural Society as one of the top 200 plants of the last 200 years!
