Cyclamen hederifolium produces long petalled pink but occaisionally white flowers in early autumn followed by beautiful ivy-shaped, glossy-marked leaves which are visible all winter. These are the toughest and most enduring of the cyclamen and will get better and better over the years eventually become quite large.
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 hederifolium tubers thrive best in lighter soils rich in leaf-mould. If drainage is a problem, lashings of grit may help. Acid to limey soil makes little difference and they should be planted 1" (3cm) deep and about 5" (12cm) apart or dotted about. Do think too about the varied tapestry achievable from their leaves.
