This season a few favorite cyclamineus have been moved to the house in the hope I will be able to cultivate them properly in pots.

I like the long straight ones but I think the neatly rolled ones are my favorite (C4).

Only a couple of photos of hybrids are handy.

This is large solid specimen that looks like it ought to be tetraploid. I have no idea what it is.

05_06D is meant to be from Peberdy (Swagger x cyclamineus). The foliage makes it very clear the pollen parent is alpestris.

This third one is another cyclataz, Peberdy crossed with a Bill Welch long straight cupped tazetta.
