Cyclamen hederifolium alba

Only about three inches tall, this is the first of my white Cyclamen hederifolium to flower. There is just the tiny flower at this time, but it will soon be followed by lovely dark green patterned ivy-like leaves. There are pink ones too, but the white is less common and I think more beautiful. They are growing in a woodland area, under Silver Birch trees, and are freely multiplying each year so they will make a gorgeous carpet of colour in time.
