Description

I love the small-headed cyclamen particularly as winter houseplants, which look like cyclamen I’ve found wild in Crete - simpler, more natural, beautiful and still showy. This bright purple variety glows with colour and will produce a flower for every leaf, to brighten the dark autumn and winter days. It’s as much at home in the garden, in a well-drained container as it is inside.

Care Tips

Always water from the base and allow the plant to draw up the water it requires. I would not water more than once a fortnight.
