Description

The white flowering form of Cyclamen hederifolium is a choice and desirable woodland plant, its pure white reflexed blooms - often with a hint of pale pink at the throat - appearing from late summer before the dramatically patterned leaves. This silver marbled foliage is extremely attractive and persists throughout the winter until the tubers go dormant in the Spring. Cyclamen hederifolium is the hardiest of the genus and overwinters easily in the UK providing it has good drainage.

Taxonomically this is correctly a synonym of Cyclamen hederifolium which tends to leave growers with a dilemma on how to differentiate it from the type species with its pink flowers. It is often listed by nurseries as Cyclamen hederifolium 'Album' or Cyclamen hederifolium var album and was described by Christopher Grey-Wilson as Cyclamen hederifolium var. hederifolium forma albiflorum, a difficult mouthful that is also sometimes encountered.

Well-established plants in 1.5L pots.
