Despatched with Late Summer or Autumn orders
Healthy plump tubers, mostly pink-flowered but they could be of any colour from light pink to a deep red to white. They will also show variations in leaf markings, from shiny or not, deep green to lustre or with silver marks and/or streaks. 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 tubers thrive best in lighter soils rich in leaf-mould; if drainage is a problem, lashings of grit may help. Acid to limey pH makes little difference and they should all be planted 1" (2cm) deep and about 5" (12cm) apart or dotted about. Do think too about the varied tapestry achievable from their leaves. Perfect companions to aconites, snowdrops and crocus.
