While weeding yesterday I came across this unusual marking on Cyclamen Hederifolium at least in my garden its not normal, The pattern on the leaf normally resembles a Christmas tree but here was a variation which to me resembled a butterfly I had not noticed it before I suspect the silver leaf one has had some influence.


Some more seed that might be worth saving
