Round-leaved Cyclamen Growing and Maintenance Tips

Grows best in partial shade, in an average to moist, well-drained soil, while they are in leaf. When they go dormant in the summer months, they need a dry site, protected from excess moisture. Cyclamen are tuberous perennials that should be planted just below the soil's surface. May take a few years to establish.
