Kruckeberg Plant of the Month: Cyclamen hederifolium

Saturday, September 13, 2014

Kruckeberg's Plant of the Month is Cyclamen hederifolium

Plant Location: Everywhere in the understory of the garden

Plant Notes: A classic sight when wandering the grounds of KBG in the fall, Cyclamen hederifolium (fall-flowering cyclamen) is a charming perennial that is one of the most widely-cultivated cyclamen species in the world.

Its pink and white flowers grace the understory of woodlands and brighten up the late summer when many other plants begin to go dormant. While normally blooming in the fall, some of our plants began to bloom in late July and early August this year! This plant is available in MsK Nursery.

Kruckeberg Botanic Gardens, 20312 15th Ave NW, Shoreline 98177.
