Dear Judy,


I enjoyed reading your article in the recent newsletter. I have seen potted
"florist's cyclamen" on desks and counters survive and bloom for several
years with, apparently, almost no care. But which of us could resist a plant
that goes on and on and still flowers?  I am going to try again with C.


What cyclamen can you grow in the ground in this warm end of Zone 6?  The
only ones that I've tried in the ground were ones that I grew from  seed:
C. coum and C. hederifolium. They both lived long enough to bloom, and then
they never appeared again, sort of a biennial with arrested development and
bad manners.
