Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman
Cyclamen, English sowbread
North Africa, Somalia, Europe and the Mediterranean region east to Iran
There are 23 species of perennials but florists most often use Cyclamen Persicum in their designs
White, bright pink, red or purple flowers also bi- and multi-coloured
Up to 7 days as cut flower and longer as flowering plant
Beautiful as flowering plant or growing design or use the foliage and flowers in designs where you require shorter stems.
Water only when the plant feels dry and do not pour the water over the crown of the plant. Keep in bright but indirect light. See the Tutorial on how to harvest Cyclamen flowers and foliage
