My plants are already well into leaf with a few early budas as well, even though it is early autumn here in New Zealand. So I'll expect at least 8 months of interest and pleasure from this choice but easy plant. I have them massed under a magnolia tree where their various leaf forms are making, after just one year planted out after a house/garden move,a beautiful, tapestried carpet, soon to be dotted liberally with pink, white and red bloom.

You're right, Lesley, eight months of colour from one easy little plant is remarkable, isn't it?! And so many people still know cyclamen only as the indoor pot plant that they kill by overwatering! Well, they should try this one.
