Cyclamen mirabile

16th October 2016

A species from southwest Turkey that does well under cover but doesn't seem to prosper in the open garden. It has been suggested that the roots and tubers rot in wet weather when it is dormant in summer.
Mine is growing in a permanently moist hydroponic system, so we shall see. I suspect that higher temperatures when it is growing during autumn and winter are more significant.
