Cyclamen creticum

Primulaceae

Cyclamen creticum

A rare species from Crete and the neighbouring island of Karpathos. Purple-backed, heart-shaped leaves are clouded and netted in diffuse patterns of silver and pewter. Bears elegant, snow-white flowers with a twist on tall stems similar to C. balearicum, but of a better substance and shape. Some have a subtle infusion of pink. Naturally small tubers need to be planted away from direct sunlight.
