Cyclamen hederifolium is definitely one of the best bulbs for the garden, and one of the most long lived. In fact the first corm I saved after finding it nearby a construction site in 1997 is still thriving over 25 years later in my nursery showgarden. These plants offered for sale are all offspring/seedlings from this one original plant. They are over 10 years old already and very large tubers indeed.
Indeed this plant has an incredible longevity and can live to over 40 years old. Fabulous carpets of them can be seen in Geneva botanical garden where thousands grow on the trees. In time this will self-seed making nice colonies. Flowers in August-October.
