Description :

Sweep the winter away!

Native to the Mediterranean basin (Balkans, Turkey, Caucasus, Lebanon) Cyclamen coum like its cousin, Cyclamen hederifolium, ivy-leaved cyclamen or sowbread, is a species that easily naturalises in the garden.

The joyous flowers of Cyclamen coum 'Album' are very welcome in the sleepy, still wintry garden. This cyclamen is a perfect companion to snowdrops while you're waiting for the first spring flowers. Heart-shaped, lightly marbled green leaves.

For a rock garden, troughs, shady borders, banks, under deciduous trees or pots.

Accompanying plants: Helleborus orientalis, Galanthus, Primula 'Dawn Ansell', Pulmonaria 'Sissinghurst White', Ipheion 'Alberto Castillo', Viola sororia 'Albiflora'

Grow preferably in partial shade (morning sun) in a humus-rich, well-drained soil. Neutral to alkaline soil. Shallow planting, so the bulb should be just below the surface of the soil. Shield from hot temperatures in the summer.

When its growing cycle has ended Cyclamen coum goes into summer dormancy. Make sure the growing substrate is kept dry to keep the tubers healthy.

Maintenance: keep an eye out for natural reseeding and, if necessary, thin and replant the new plantlets. Mulch with mature compost at the end of spring.

Cyclamen coum is also very rewarding in pots. Grow in a mixture of equal parts rough sand (sand and shells, chalky gravel), compost and good garden soil or loam. Don't forget the mature compost which acts as fertilizer and to add lime if necessary.
