The Persian cyclamen (Cyclamen Persicum) is known to the wider audience as a pot plant. Cyclamens in the garden are a rare view, as they are not resistant to frost and their tubers need to be excavated before the winter. The low, up to 15 cm, growing cyclamen can appear in the garden early in spring already or late in autumn. Both the flowers and the foliage of these plants is ornamental. It takes on various forms, from heart shaped, through kidney shaped to dentate. Their surface is usually decorated with a glorious silver pattern that resembles marble veining. The flowers sit atop the leafless stalks and precede the leaves in development. They are rather small, but come in large numbers and smell wonderfully. They take on a characteristic shape and consist of erected petals. The variety offered here in our store takes on a dark pink colour.
This species has its certain requirements. It likes partially shaded, wind-sheltered and warm sites. The soil needs to be humous, permeable and with a neutral or slightly alkaline reaction. It is of utmost importance that the site for cyclamen growing is not too moist, as it would make the tubers prone to moulding. Plant the tubers rather shallow.
Cyclamens grown in the garden will develop well under trees and shrubs. They will look great hidden from the wind in the sheltered corners of a rock garden. This plant allows you to create unique arrangements in shallow bowls and planters. Cyclamens become the most beautiful after several years when they have a chance to spread. The densely planted cyclamens can be treated as a unusual covering plant.
Each package contains 10 tubers of the Persian cyclamen - Cyclamen Persicum - sized 12 to 14 cm.
