Cyclamen persicum Red are hardy herbaceous perennials that flower in the latter part of the year and last through until next spring, sporting attractive deciduous foliage alongside their large colourful blooms. More commonly seen as an indoor plant variety, these plants provide some much needed colour into the home to brighten your day during the darker winter months. Cyclamen persicum begins developing attractive heart-shaped leaves with a dark-green shade, coupled with an intriguing splash of shimmering silver dotted on the top of the leaves for a marbled effect. When it comes to flowering, the long upright stems bloom and tower above the foliage, providing a fantastic colourful contrast to the leaves, these blooms will also begin to give off a delightfully sweet fragrance.
These plants are winter flowering and their foliage is deciduous, so as the temperature rises this plant will die off and become dormant during summer. Once dormancy occurs, this plant can be stored outside before being brought back inside when the frosts begin, ready to provide those attractive blooms for the following winter. The key to longevity for this plant is to neither overwater or underwater it, wait until the soil is dry to the touch before providing it with more water, but just enough to keep the soil moist, waterlogging this plant will cause the tuber to rot. A good practice is standing the plant pot in water, allow the plant to soak up as much as it needs, then allow it to drain away the excess before placing it on a tray.
