More about cyclamens
I've heard some authorities recommend that the bulbs be planted deep, 12" or more, but I haven't followed that advice. But nor have a I tried any species other than the common spring-flowering Cyclamen coum and the fall-flowering C. heterophyllum.
As is the case with the Arums, the cyclamens are summer dormant, which is not uncommon for plants adapted to a Mediterranean climate.
