On The Edge
There is a lot of variation in the leaves of hardy cyclamens; no two are exactly alike, and some of them are really out there on the edge in that they hardly even look like cyclamens. Above is one of the silver leafed hederifoliums, which look like they are little clouds floating above the dead leaves of autumn. Below is a Cyclamen coum that looks like... well, I don't know exactly what it looks like; perhaps seedlings of some type of melon? Last is a hederifolium with lanceolate leaves, looking rather more like a hardy ginger than a cyclamen.
