    Delicate pink or white flowers with upswept petals appear with the foliage from winter to early spring among rounded, silvery-green leaves with marbled markings. These diminutive cyclamen are perfect for naturalising around the base of deciduous trees and shrubs. Best in humus-rich, well-drained soil in partial shade, they make excellent companions for ferns and other shade-loving plants.

  • Garden care: Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted leaf mould around the crown of the plants in spring as the foliage starts to die back.
