    Ideal for patio pots, baskets and window boxes, the vivid-red shuttlecock flowers of ‘Metis Red’ will provide a burst of colour for winter bedding schemes over many months. Marbled leaves provide a silvery-green foliage backdrop to this miniature cyclamen which is suitable for most sheltered outdoor spots shielded from the worst of the elements.

  • Garden care: These half-hardy annual ‘winter bedding’ cyclamen will need protection from frosts so place them in a sheltered spot or where you can cover them with plant protection fleece (taking care to avoid damage to flowers/buds) if temperatures dip below zero. Deadheading will prolong flowering.
