A carpet of Cyclamens coum (Persian Violet) is backed by the glowing orange stems of Cornus sanguinea 'Midwinter Fire' (Bloodtwig Dogwood) and luminous Salix alba var. vitellina 'Britzensis' (Scarlet Willow).

All plants are fabulous at brightening the winter or early spring garden with their bold splashes of colors. Cyclamens coum (Persian Violet) are ideal for naturalizing between shrubs and trees, they are easy to grow and self-sow once established, creating a striking floral carpet over time. They combine beautifully with Hellebores, another outstanding winter bloomer.

Known as Christmas Roses (Helleborus niger) or Lenten Roses (Helleborus x hybridus or orientalis), Hellebores are prized for their profuse and long-lasting blooms as well as for their attractive leathery foliage which remains fresh-looking year-round. Blooming steadily from midwinter to mid spring, Hellebores are tough, cold-hardy, deer or rabbit resistant and easy to grow perennials.

Low maintenance and fairly easy to replicate, this planting includes top performing plants which have been awarded prestigious awards. Enjoy a glorious and colorful spectacle from winter to even spring!
