Lost a couple of Cyclamen labels
« on: November 10, 2019, 02:44:11 PM »
Good afternoon - is anyone able to help me re-find the IDs for these two Cyclamen, which I lost the labels for?

One of them should be C. libanoticum, and the other one should be a species native to the Madonie mountains in Sicily.

Thanks for any help :/ I can re-ask if and when they flower, but perhaps someone knows these by the leaves alone.

Best wishes,

Rob.

Hi Rob ,

I think I can help you :

C1 = Cyc. hederifolium ( Madonie /Sicily )
C2 = Cyc. libanoticum

Best wishes
Hans

Many thanks. The Sicily plant should be a spring-flowerer: I thought it was perhaps C. repandum. Still I don't know....

On the Madonie Mts. grows both species ( repandum + hederifolium )
I know this area well :)
repandum looks realy different

Your Cyclamen repandum with white flowers is a very nice one, Hans.  :)

Thank You, Hans, I feel highly honoured!  :) I grow a few Cyclamen repandum, too, but what I especially like of the one shown in # 4 is the combination of flower colour and the form and colouring of the leaves. Very pretty, indeed.
