Garden Tuesday - Hardy Cyclamen

Hardy Cyclamen

Hardy cyclamens are an unusual plant. They go dormant in the summer (and if you are not careful, you can easily forget where they are), but then in the fall these lovely delicate pink flowers pop up. After the flowers fade, pretty ivy like leaves appear and stay green all winter. It adds some sweet color to a shady spot.

Oh, I wished they grew here--it gets too cold. At leasts, from my experience.
