Those Amazing Cyclamen!

September 9, 2010

Cyclamen are a welcome sight in our area in January. You tromp into a nursery, or even the floral department of the grocery store, happy to find any glimpse of spring. After enjoying them indoors, cyclamen can be transplanted into the garden. However, they usually crash with the summer heat.

Here we are, struggling with the heat, and there are still cyclamen in the park. They’ve made it through. No, they aren’t blooming, but I think you’d agree that the foliage is worth keeping them around.

The ones that are surviving in the park now are in containers, in shady locations, enjoying moist soil conditions. They may not survive to bloom again, but it’s nice to know that, somehow, they’ve been able to bring a smile to summer as well.
