This is the parent corm. It must be close to a foot across now. It hasn’t flowered as well this year.
I particularly like the cyclamen hederifolium group as they produce a lovely mound of flowers in the autumn and follow this with a mounded mass of mottled leaves which give life and form to the garden right through winter. I think that the winter foliage is almost as valuable as the flowers.
Hope you enjoyed this little journey with me.
