An excellent form of Cyclamen mirabile from Peter Moore has leaves with a well defined dark green 'Christmas Tree' pattern surrounded by pure silver. Its flowers emerge during September to October from the centre of the plant in various shades of pink with rose basal markings. Give full light in winter.

Alpine House cultivation: All cyclamen are suitable for alpine house cultivation, especially the more tender species. The alpine house should receive maximum light, but will require shading in summer. Good air circulation is crucial and extra vents are a must. We advise growing in clay pans using a suitable compost. This may be made up by mixing two parts (by bulk) of John Innes compost No2, one part of Perlite and one part of shredded leaf mould. Top dress all tubers with a layer of grit. Give just enough heat to exclude frost in very cold weather. Otherwise, plunging your pots in sand or covering with horticultural fleece during very cold spells will give an amazing amount of extra protection.
