Cyclamen persicum (Wild form)



29th March 2017


I got this as Cyclamen persicum 'Album' which it clearly isn't. This is a moderately pale form of the species which occurs naturally around the eastern end of the Mediterranean with an outlying population in North Africa (Algeria and Tunisia).
I am growing it in the greenhouse and last winter was mild enough for it to come through unscathed. That may not always be the case.
