Cyclamen alpinum (alpine cyclamen)

Cyclamen alpinum - alpine cyclamen - Flowers appear in early spring as the snow melts, in the wild from January to April, dependent on altitude, from white through shades of pink to deep carmine purple and sweetly primrose scented. The corolla lobes are very distinctive, held horizontally, resembling a ship’s propeller, rather than reflexed as in other species, 9-14mm long, with generally 90-120 degrees twist, pointed tips, often slightly serrated ends and a solid black red blotch at the base. Leaves appear in autumn, round to slightly heart shaped, smooth or slightly toothed and scalloped margins, indistinctly patterned, mostly a green ‘Christmas tree’ centre with either spots or a grey or silver area breaking into spots toward the margin, underside purplish. There is a high altitude ecotype with tiny leaves, giving a wide size range for the species, 1-9cm long and 1-9cm wide. Family: Primulaceae
