Cyclamen Cilicium is a beautiful perennial with rosy-pink flowerheads that are 2-3cm and dark-green, heart-shaped foliage that is mottled with silver on the topside and purple underneath. Born on brownish-red stems, gorgeous blooms of recurved and twisted petals that have an almost butterfly-like appearance.
Frost hardy, Cyclamen Cilicium is great for early fall planting and the later blooms are a delight. Plant in borders, beds or woodland gardens and great used for underplanting around taller shrubs and trees. Makes a beautiful container plant in pots or window boxes.
Cyclamen are small plants with gorgeous blooms that need attentive care and proper watering. Cyclamen have lovely colours of bright pinks and lovely lavenders. Flowerheads are unique and have very distinct petals, often of a heart-shape, that make for great display plants.
Unique foliage accompanies the beautiful flowerheads of the Cyclamen species. Grown from what is often mistaken as a comb or bulb, the plants are grown from tubers, similar to a potato. Some varieties are very susceptible to high or low temperatures and need to be grown indoors, while other varieties have been bred and grown for outdoor use.
Cyclamen require careful watering so that soils remain moist, avoiding overwatering or drying out. After the blooming season, the leaves will start to wither and fade, remove flowerheads by cutting near the base of the stem and stop watering, allowing the leaves to completely fade. Remove the foliage and store indoor plants in cool areas. Outdoor plants with naturalise an area over time.
Planting Cyclamen from the tubers requires carefully superficial planting, do this by submerging the tuber by approximately 60-70%, into a well-drained soil, leaving approximately 30% of the top of the tuber exposed. Cyclamen should be planted in shaded to partially shaded areas and should be seasonally mulched.
