Ivy-leaved Cyclamen (Cyclamen Hederifolium mix) 12 seeds (#1420)

This hardy, durable, low-growing perennial offers charming flowers in late summer and handsome foliage through the chilly months. Native to southern Europe and westernmost Turkey, it has escaped gardens and established naturalized populations over much of the rest of Europe.
The gray- to dark-green, heart-shaped to lance-shaped leaves of Cyclamen hederifolium arise from underground tubers in late summer or early fall. The leaves are often strikingly marbled or veined with contrasting shades of green or silver-gray. Light- to deep-pink, nodding flowers with five erect, backswept petals are borne on short stems in summer and early fall, usually before the leaves emerge. The petals have a purple eye-mark at the base. Although typically unscented, the flowers are sometimes sweetly fragrant. The flower stalks coil back to the ground as the spherical seed capsules develop. Ants harvest and distribute the sugary-coated seeds. The leaves die back in spring to the plump, concave, long-lived tuber, which can grow to more than 25 cm across.
C. hederifolium thrives in well-drained, humus-rich, near-neutral soil. It does well under deciduous trees, or in other sites that are sunny in winter and drier and shadier during its summer dormant season. Plant the tubers in late summer or spring at a relatively shallow depth. Older tubers often "grow out" of the soil and require replanting. This cyclamen is lovely planted in large sweeps. It also works well in rock gardens and containers.
