Cyclamen graecum 'Glyfada'

Original collected plant

Cyclamen graecum subsp. graecum ‘Glyfada

Leaves of an overall pewter colour with a thin green margin; flowers large, pale pinkish-purple. Collected in March 1971 by Brian & Margaret Mathew near the village of Glyfada, Attica, Greece which is close to the old Athens airport – the village now having been consumed by Athen’s urban sprawl.

In cultivation it is an amenable cultivar which in three years from seed sowing produces floriferous plants closely resembling the parent plant.  It produces better than 75% true from seed and even the rogued plants are desirable.
