Potsize – 3.5 inch round
Cyclamen coum is the other cyclamen commonly grown out of doors in Britain. It is a little fussier than Cyclamen hederifolium but essentially requires quick drainage, good winter light with a little shade in the hottest part of the day come Spring and shelter from cold drying winds. It is very hardy but dislikes freezing or wet winds. Its marbled kidney-shaped leaves appear in September and persist until late Spring when higher temperatures and sunlight force the into a protective dormancy. The flowers are more dumpy and rounded than typical cyclamen flowers and come in a range of colours from white through pink to deep magenta, always with a darker blotch at the mouth of the paler eyes. They liven up the Winter garden, appearing as they do from Christmas onwards, being remarkably cold tolerant. Excellent for naturalising in sunny banks at the foot of trees, even conifers providing the branches don’t come too close to the ground. They only require good drainage, some shelter and a little shade in late Spring which can be provided by deciduous shrubs and tress or even herbaceous plants or bulbs.
