A few phone calls to your local garden centres may unearth a source, though the tubers are more often available in the spring. Another source is Fraser’s Thimble Farms on Salt Spring Island. They ship in the fall and list three forms of the species.
These little cyclamens naturalize easily to make a beautiful ground cover throughout the winter. The foliage dies down in the warmth of spring and masses of little blooms emerge to create a floral carpet in late summer and early fall. The leaves are artistically marbled in silver. The flowers are most commonly pink, but there is a white-flowering form.
