Brighten darkened corners of the landscape with this lovely mix of butterfly blooms. Cyclamen flowers of white, dark rosy pink and light pink appear in late winter to very early spring--sometimes pushing up through the snow to be admired. Cyclamen are fantastic additions to the shady sites in any garden, including under deciduous trees and between shrubbery. They give gorgeous pops of color to the barren late-winter landscape. But it's not only the fluttering blooms that delight, this blend features bright silvery foliage that is just as attractive. A bone-hardy plant that makes a great ground cover year after year.
