Original Tile Barn Nursery stock plant
Cyclamen coum f. albissimum ‘Tilebarn Fenella’
The leaves are orbicular to sub-cordate, and mid-green with a slightly darker central hastate pattern outlined by a very pale green margin. The flowers are entirely white with corolla lobes that are twisted anti-clockwise through 90º right at the mouth of the corolla tube so the profile of the flower appears box-like. The margins of the petals are dentate.
Bred from a plant found by Manfred Koenen in 1980 in the Amanus Mountains of Hatay Province in Southern Turkey, between Belen and Topbogazi, and named by Peter Moore who developed it from Manfred’s material.
