CYCLAMEN

A plant ideally suited to cooler temperatures and weaker sunlight, the cyclamen looks beautiful amongst fallen leaves.

I adore cyclamens..yours is beautiful Louise..maybe I should try growing one outside..I've managed to kill every single one inside so far! Gx

I love Cyclamen - they're so cheerful at this time of year and their marbled leaves add interest when there's no flower too. Practically perfect plants!

Your cyclamen looks great, I always give my mum one in July and she puts it outside after flowering but it ends up dying.

So wonderful to see any sort of flower in the garden this time of year. A lovely photo :)

Lovely photo, they almost look a bit speckled. I really love the pattern on the leaves too.
This weekend I was putting greenery and pinecones into my front planter box and noticed that my violets are still in bloom too, I imagine the -9 weather we are supposed to get tomorrow might do them in though.

A nice little splash of colour.

Utterly seasonal and charming.

Those cyclamen are lovely. Anything that brings colour to a garden this time of year is worth its weight in gold!

I think it looks rather magical! Very pretty indeed.

In Canada they only sell this plant in florist shops in pots for gifts and I have given it many times to friends and family. Does it grow all year round in English gardens?

The cyclamen has a very nice bloom. Sorta reminds me of a vinca minor bloom. And the leaf belongs to the rattlesnake plaintain family, or though it has characteristics as though it does.
