With attractive marbled leaves for at least nine months of the year, and a fine display of pale- to deep-pink, delicate blooms pirouetting gracefully on slender stalks through the autumn months, cyclamen is one of the most popular woodland shade plants. The first blooms usually appear before the leaves start to come through in October and will quickly produce large colonies, useful for growing beneath trees. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
