Cyclamen cyprium ‘ES‘
This plant has deep green leaves, boldly marked with splashes of contrasting silver. The Society contacted Elizabeth Strangman a couple of years ago who confirmed that the plant originally came from Ray Cobb (who got if from his friend Dennis Carlyle) and that she passed it on to Peter Moore of Tile Barn Nursery. She was asked if the ES could be expanded to ‘Elizabeth Strangman’ and she said that she doesn’t feel that it is appropriate for it to be named after her. Peter Moore put ‘ES’ on the labels to differentiate the plants from ordinary cyprium when people came to pay, with the ES actually meaning either Extra Silver or Extra Special.
