Cyclamen

The Cyclamen species offered here are all hardy for Central Europe and prefer a partially shaded place (e.g. under deciduous shrubs) in a peaty or leafy soil, which will stay moist in summer and rather dry in winter. They will naturalize under good conditions. The wintergreen and summer dormant species Cyclamen persicum (Persian Cyclamen) is not winterhardy and plants should be kept in a frostfree spot during winter at a minimum of some 5°C in a sunny spot.
Sow late summer to early spring in a well drained, sandy and peaty soil. Only slightly cover seeds. Keep outside in the garden in a partially shaded spot. Transplant corms after two years while corms are being dormant, which is usually from early to late summer. Most Cyclamen will flower within two to three years and plants may gain several decades of age.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6 unless otherwise specified.
20 seeds per package.
