Bush Park’s Featured Plant Oct.19

Cyclamen hederifolium (Hardy Cyclamen) is a tuberous perennial and woodland plant that blooms in late fall. After the flowers fade, the heart-shaped variegated leaves remain through winter and then die back in summer. May eventually self-seed and naturalize. Can be planted in front of shrubs or around trees, and overplanted in summer with annuals. If a cyclamen likes the spot where it’s planted, it can live up to 100 years! Our cyclamen lives in the Rhododendron Hillside Garden (south end of the park), on the right as you descend the steps.
