Hederifolium

Cyclamen Hederifolium has been granted the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit [AGM] which means that it is a variety of plant considered to be of “outstanding excellence” for ornamental garden use - it is intended to help gardeners chose plants of “all round garden value”  and we agree that Cyclamen Hederifolium is definitely that !

This is the easiest of the Hardy Cyclamen to grow and is the one to start with if you have not grown Cyclamen before - it is totally hardy in the British Isles, growing the most vigourously of all of the varieties, happy in almost any conditions in most well-drained locations. 

It self-seeds freely and it is ideal for the the garden naturalising into drifts readily. It has been a popular garden plant in the UK since the sixteenth century, although it originates in nature from an area centred on the Mediterranean. It will give a fantastic display with flowers from July to October when the rest of the garden is preparing for winter, and will continue to do so for many years.

The pink or white flowers (approx. 6 inches high) come in late summer giving colour until autumn. The variegated ivy-shaped grey-green marbled leaves then follow providing ground cover through the winter until late spring.  It provides valuable colour and interest in the garden when most other plants are losing theirs or are dormant

This Hederifolium corm is about 10 years old.

The photograph was taken in September when the corm was in full
flower, with many more buds showing and the leaves yet to come.

 This corm is also shown on the ‘cultural advice’ page
showing the seed pods which formed from the flowers that set.
