Flowers of the Cyclamen hederifolium appear at the end of summer. Flowering often continues until winter sets in. After flowering, the beautifully drawn, heart-shaped leaves appear. The leaves remain on the tuber of the cyclamen well into spring.
Plant the flat tubers of Cyclamen hederifolium as soon as possible after receipt. Plant the about 5 cm deep. As long as the tubers have not been planted in the ground, the cyclamen must be stored frost-free. The cyclamen grows best in humus-rich, not too wet soil in a spot in partial shade or shade.
