Product Description

This early riser delights the spring garden with umbrellas of hanging reflexed flowers, just like cyclamen. The fresh light pink flowers add a flash to shady spots, where the plants with thrive in the cool conditions. Deciduous foliage rosettes fade by midsummer, returning each spring before a flush of tall upright flower stems. This is the perfect spring perennial for anyone looking to lift shady areas of the garden.
