(aka: Cyclamen confusum) Cyclamen hederifolium ssp. confusum is a strange tetraploid form of Cyclamen hederifolium from the southern part of its native range (Crete, Sicily, and Southern Grece). In appearance, Cyclamen hederifolium ssp. confusum is similar to the typical species except for the exceptionally thick vinyl-like leaves. The flowers begin in midsummer and continue through fall.
