With their pretty, marbled, heart-shaped leaves and upright, fragrant pinkor white flowers, these cyclamen have a long season of interestbefore disappearing below ground over the summer. The flowers of thisautumn-flowering cyclamen often appear well before the leaves, which form a pretty carpet after the flowers have finished. Although they areusually planted in shade, these cyclamen originate from the Mediterranean, soare equally happy in sun. Plant them en masse in a woodland setting with ferns and other shade-tolerant plants or around the base ofdeciduous trees.Garden care: Plant shallowly in humus-rich, fertile soil. Apply a mulch of well-rotted leafmould around the crown of the plants in spring as the foliage starts to die back.
