Cyclamen plants, native to the Mediterranean's cool and damp climate year-round, are an excellent choice for your home during winter months. The abundant selection of vibrant colors nestled among sweet, heart-shaped leaves brighten up any holiday or hallway table. When this plant’s life cycle is understood and respected, it’s not difficult to maintain year-round.


1. Cyclamen Growing Season

Unlike most flowering houseplants that grow in North America, cyclamen thrive during winter and lie dormant in summer. Cyclamen plants store the food needed for energy and nutrition to grow in the swollen tuberous roots. The flowers can be daintily ruffled or rounded, depending on the variety you choose, and their beautiful colored blooms enhance any space you put them in.
