Cyclamen coum flowers in the early spring from plump tubers and will be mostly pink but they could be of any colour and they will show variations in leaf markings. Best in summer shade. Perfect companions to aconites, snowdrops and crocus.
This plant/cultivar has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit because it has proved to be reliable in appropriate conditions and a good performing plant.
Cyclamen coum tubers thrive best in lighter soils rich in leaf-mould. If drainage is a problem, lashings of grit may help. They are tolerant of acid and limey soil and they should be planted 1" (2cm) deep and about 5" (12cm) apart or dotted about. Do think too about the varied tapestry achievable from their leaves.
