I'm in zone 5, probably 5b going on 6, and Cyclamen are tricky here.

The squirrels, ate C. coum as fast as I could plant them.  C. purpureum 
never came up after planting, so I suspect squirrels in their case as 
well.  C. hederifolium lasted several years in one spot, disappeared 
without a trace in several other spots.  All are long gone now.

So Cyclamen seem to be marginal at best here in the Midwest.
