Cyclamen Alpinum

Same species as the one Amy showed a few days ago her white one is less often seen(Rarer) in cultivation.
Note the five pence in the pot shows just how tiny it is.

That´s lovely. With that penny, as well.

Kat... that's a 5 pence coin ...
... Brian is wealthy ;o) Lol.

No doubt, when he gives 5 pence to alpine, what is he giving under large shrubs and trees?

Lol... Kat ... golden coins for trees ;o)

Not much value in a Five pence piece ,Would need seven of them to buy a packet of Crisps.
As for the shrubs they have Gold in the form of Fertilizer.

Yes. Money spent on Cyclamen is a much better investment than buying Crisps ..

I love them as you know but they are so small they really do need an elevated Position to show them off.

Thanks B, it's nice to be back!
Still undergoing tests, unfortunately, but willing and able, nevertheless. Lol.

That's a very pretty plant, do you grow it indoors? I've never had much luck with cyclamen but it has been a while since I've tried one.

Rkwright

They are either in the Alpine house or the garden, most would struggle with your low temperatures.

I have never tried any outdoors but have struggled with them indoors, a lot of it has been the timing when I buy them. There are two varieties that will grow outdoors here, Cyclamen hederifolium and Cyclamen coum. I am hoping to get a couple to try this year!
