The scoop on Hardy Cyclamen / Cyclamen hederifolium

Familiar with colorful florist cyclamens? Did you know there are several varieties that can be grown in home gardens? This variety is the easiest and delivers an unexpected, but oh so welcome, pop of pink in September/October. Naturalizes where happy to create sweeps of pink.

Why Grow Cyclamen?

  • Hardy cyclamen plant flower in early to mid fall when little else is blooming outside
  • These plants are happiest in the dappled shade and humusy soils found in woodlands and under deciduous trees
  • Deer, rabbits and rodents find cyclamen distasteful - good news
