We've had good luck with the Mediterranean Cyclamen purpurascens, provided it's planted where it can stay fairly dry in the summer months. In the wild, we saw Cyclamen purpurascens growing on alkaline soils throughout much of the Balkans, hailing from as high as 4,200' elevation, further north than any other cyclamen species. The round patterned leaves and dark pink flowers of Cyclamen purpurascens spring alive from June through September, adding great color to the summer woodland garden. In colder climates, good winter drainage is key to survival.
