Cyclamen africanum

It is an easy plant to grow, very similar to C hederifolium but not so hardy. It does produce a lot of charming pink flowers and enormous crops of seed, so is very reliable.

Cyclamen cilicum

This is on a different scale to C africanum, small and delicate, absolutely delightful.

Cyclamen intaminatum

Even smaller than C cilicum, the flowers with their faint strips are one of the most subtle of the genus.

Cyclamen persicum

The leaves of this C persicum have been a real joy to see emerge, as the patterns are better than I could ever have envisaged. I have a few of them, all grown from AGS seed, and with some of the C graecum and the C hederifolium that are coming into leaf I have a riot of leaf patterns and colouration.
