3. Cyclamen Hybrids

Hybridizing is the process of intentionally creating new plants to improve desirable features. There are three main types of cyclamen hybrids. The Sierra Series produces large, brightly-colored flowers ranging from 2 to 4 inches in width. The flowers bloom in white, pink, salmon, scarlet, lilac, and purple. Scentsation cyclamen hybrids are an open-pollinated variety with strong fragrances; their flowers bloom in shades of pink and red. Victoria cyclamen hybrids are another open-pollinated variety that produce lovely ruffled white blooms outlined in red.
