Cyclamen x wellensiekii is a hybrid of Cyclamen cyprium x Cyclamen libanoticum, named after Professor Dr. Ir. S.J. Wellensiek of the Agricultural University of Wageningen, Netherlands, who first produced the hybrid in 1969. Cyclamen x wellensiekii has nicely silver-patterned rounded leaves, flowers over a long period during winter, and sets fertile seed. The flowering period is greatly extended, lasting as long as 6 months. Cyclamen x wellensiekii is summer dormant and should be kept dry during this time.
