This rare cyclamen species is probably our favorite...for advanced gardeners only! While not as vigorous as C. hederifolium, the very dark green, velvety-appearing foliage (often patterned silver) is stunning even when not in flower. In late summer and fall, the tiny clumps are topped with dodecatheon-like flowers of red, pink, or rose...rising just above the foliage. C. graecum prefers a more sunny site than most of the other cyclamen species.
