Cylamen persicum is a great seasonal choice for bedding plants that can be rotated and planted in the cooler fall months of the year. Leaves appear in autumn and through the winter and then die back in spring as the plant goes dormant through the hot, dry summer season. Cyclamens flower on a stem coming from a growing point on a tuber which supports leaves, flowers, and the root system. Flowers have five petals and display soft white, pink, or purple colors that intensify on the interior of each flower. Cyclamens prefer partial shade and need protection from hot afternoon sun. They are somewhat water-efficient and need only enough water to keep from completely drying out.
