Who could not help but love these delightful little cormous perennials? From the tops of these grey, pumpkin-shaped corms, which sit just below ground level, emerge the striking green and silver mottled foliage in early October, making 6-12" wide mounds. Starting in July and continuing through October, just prior to the emerging foliage, the tiny pink dodecatheon-like flowers poke through the ground. By late spring, the foliage dies down and does something many of us wish we could do...go to sleep for the summer. Cyclamen hederifolium are great in masses and will naturalize in woodland settings where they can be dry while dormant. We prefer to situate them at the base or under the canopy of large trees or shrubs. Cyclamen hederifolium was named by the Royal Horticultural Society as one of the top 200 plants of the last 200 years!
