Miniature Cyclamen

Cyclamen METIS ‘Bright Red Compact Evolution’ – A miniature cyclamen that can tolerate temperatures close to freezing, meaning that it can be used in fall and winter planters that are sheltered from rain . This variety features a compact growth habit, fire engine red flowers and finely variegated foliage. Grows 6-8″ high and wide. Houseplant or seasonal bedding.

Cyclamen TIANIS ‘Fantasia Deep Magenta’ – A midi or mid-sized variety with bi-coloured flower petals of deep magenta crisply edged in white. The blooms grow in size as they open, with mature flowers displaying back-swept petals. It is a nice accent for fall containers and is shown here planted with Sedum ‘Ogon’. Grows 6 to 8″ high and wide. Houseplant or seasonal bedding.

Cyclamen METIS ‘Light Pink with Eye Evolution’ – A lovely miniature with pale salmon pink petals and a contrasting rose eye at the base of the flower (shown here planted with Ajuga ‘Black Scallop’). These long-blooming plants make excellent houseplants for cooler rooms and have been known to flower from September to March. Grows 6-8″ high and wide. Houseplant or bedding.

Cyclamen TIANIS ‘Fantasia Purple’ – Another midi-type with bicolour blooms of rich purple with sharp white edges. The spent blooms should be removed by gently tugging them out by the stem at the base. When watering, be careful to keep the foliage and flowers as dry as possible (to prevent fungus and spoiled flowers) by just wetting the soil. Grows 6-8″ high and wide. Houseplant.

Cyclamen METIS ‘Magenta Silverleaf’ – There are many gardeners who would buy this miniature Cyclamen just for the leaves alone, as they are handsomely banded and veined in silver. These are accented by abundant magenta blooms held on strong stems. They can be kept from year to year by allowing the tuber a dormant period in summer. Grows 6-8″ high and wide. Cool season bedding.
