AUTUMN BRIGHT... CYCLAMEN by Magda Indigo


The name Cyclamen is presumed to come from Greek 'kyclos', a circle referring to the round tubers, or leaves. Cyclamen is a genus of 23 species of perennial flowering plants in the family Primulaceae. Cyclamen species are native to Europe and the Mediterranean Basin east to Iran, with one species in Somalia. They grow from tubers and are valued for their flowers with upswept petals and variably patterned leaves. Lovely inverted flowers rise out of fantastically patterned rounded or heart-shaped leaves. Some of the patterns, particularly the silver leaved varieties are exquisite and can truly be described as a wonder of nature. They come in beautiful colours from white, pink, purple, red and combinations of these. So, if you want colour – and colour at this time of year when it can be in short supply – then you can make sure you have it in abundant, ground-hugging form, by planting the hardy autumn-flowering cyclamen. Cyclamen like the cool; the smaller the leaves, the cooler they can stand it. The tubers are regarded as the favourite food for pigs in the South of France, Sicily and Italy, hence a rather uncommon common name Sowbread. Cyclamen are poisonous; they have been used medicinally as a powerful purgative, but their toxicity makes this risky. Full of promise, plenty of buds.
