We love Cyclamen mirabile, not only for the charming pink flowers produced from September through December, but also for the highly ornamental silver dollar-sized foliage which is often intricately patterned in silver and green. Cyclamen mirabile has been particularly reliable for us, thriving under our largest eucalyptus tree which provides dappled shade and dry soil during summer while the bulb is resting. The 1", bright pink, nodding flowers are typical of the species, although the individual petals are often twisted. New foliage emerges in autumn and is sometimes flushed pink, aptly living up to its epithet "mirabile" which means marvelous!
