This pewter-leaf form of the rare C. graecum is difficult to find commercially in the US. In late summer, the corms are topped with dodecatheon-like flowers of red, pink, or rose...rising just above the pewter foliage. C. graecum prefers a more sunny site than most of the other cyclamen species and should be kept dry when dormant.
