There are few sights which surpass a mixed planting of Cyclamen coum (Persian Violet) on an early spring morning. When combined with the golden-yellow cup-shaped blooms of Eranthis hyemalis (Winter Aconite) and the dainty nodding white blossoms of Galanthus (Snowdrops), they all add sparkles in the winter or early spring garden, when most plants are still dormant, and bring huge amounts of optimism and great joy.

All plants are low maintenance and naturalize well. Great performers, they have won the prestigious Award of Garden Merit for their qualities.

Plant en masse under deciduous trees or shrubs for an elegant statement!
