Our most popular varieties are both totally hardy in the British Isles and provide valuable colour in the garden when most other plants are losing theirs or are dormant : -
This is the one to start with if you have not grown Cyclamen before - it is very hardy, growing the most vigorously of all of the varieties, happy in almost any conditions in most well-drained locations, self-seeding freely and is ideal for the the garden naturalising into drifts readily. It has been a popular garden plant in the UK since the sixteenth century. The pink or white flowers (approx. 6 inches high) come in late summer giving colour until autumn. The variegated ivy-shaped grey-green marbled leaves then follow providing ground cover through the winter until late spring.
Prices for individual corms are set out below - but please also see our Special Offers on corm collections giving great extra value for money on 'bulk' purchases.
Pink £2-50 each
Album (white) £3-00 each
This wonderful cyclamen brightens the depths of winter with dumpy white, pink or magenta flowers from late December to March.

Like Hederifolium, Coum naturalises very well and gives a marvelous display, especially with snowdrops. See our Special Offers which are designed to enable you to establish a bed of Cyclamen quickly for greater impact.
Mixed Flower Colours £2-50 each
Album (white) £3-00 each
