Cyclamen coum ‘Tilebarn Elizabeth’
This cultivar has striking flowers: picotee-edged, bicoloured, very pale pink or whitish, flushed deeper towards the petal margins, blotched magenta-crimson at the mouth. The leaves are entirely pewter-coloured without green veining, often crimson purple beneath. Named by Peter Moore for his wife Elizabeth. This is an easy plant in cultivation and, in sheltered shady woodland in deep leaf litter, does very well. In the greenhouse, finished flowers need removing quickly as this cultivar can be so dense that botrytis can quickly take hold in the crowded crown.
