One of my poor tortured Cyclamen rohlfsianum from the Cyclamen Society seedex of 1986.   As Diane and Maggi mentioned it is typically concave on top and one has to wonder if it is not a desperate mechanism to collect a bit of moisture in its native haunts, mist or dew perhaps.  Unfortunately now matter where I place it a drip will invariably spring directly over it in the greenhouse.

Re-potted last year it already is screaming asking for a larger pot.

And here is another variation, silver with green a Xmas tree centre.

I thought with such a cool summer here purpurascens would not flower so well but they have. Maybe next summer they will be shy.

Wow, John, that's a great variation for C. purpurascens! Is it flowering size yet?
cheers

I guess I haven't been paying attention as today I found a good-sized 4-5 year old plant in the greenhouse with identical leaves. I'll try to take a shot.

Diane asked for a side on picture of my C africanum album?It is just coming into flower,it certainly does not have a concave tuber but neither does my pink one,Perhaps that is not C africanum,I would not like to get the dreaded NAS as David mentioned.it would be nice if someone could post a picture of the flower of C africanum and C hederifolium side by side.
Regarding seed my last picture is from a 1986 copy of the Bernard Harkness seedlist handbook,

Two shots of the newly found purpurascens  - green Xmas tree on silver leaf. 

And the old and tired africanum with sunken centre.

David very nice. You will see that mine flower before the leaves have formed but this may be down to my watering regime.

sometimes you can't give them away. This africanum (i suspect two of them looking at the flower colour) is one of several potted up for sale three years ago and were unwanted. As you can see from the second picture the pot is now bulging!

Two days ago Arthur (art600) and I visited Peter Moore, the following show some of the plants he has in flower.
1. A group of Cyclamen hederifolium plants.
2. A 3" pot of C. hederifolium, I wish I could get them to flower as well as this....
3. C. hederifolium Rosenteppich
4. The Rosenteppich that I bought, I liked the black markings on the sinus contrasting with the white tips to the petals.

Some more plants seen at Peter Moore's.
1. C. rohlfsianum with extraordinary long petals.
2. C. rohlfsianum holding its petals like C.alpinum.
3. The C.rohlfsianum that I decided to buy.
4. It was a surprise to see a flower on C. persicum Tilebarn Karpathos.
5. A nice leaf form of C.graecum ssp anatolicum that I could not resist.

Thanks for showing all this well grown Cyclamen.

Melvyn - thanks for the pictures of Peter Moores nursery - it is a good luck for me (and my account balance) it is so far away ... 8) ;)
