Cyclamen coum

I know the photo's a little out of focus but it shows some plants in our Alpine box, mostly sempervivums. But along the back are the Cyclamen coum, a very hardy little bulb from the mountains of Bulgaria, Turkey and Lebanon. During the summer they go dormant but can be made into a lovely little centerpiece by raising the bulb and placing it in a small bonsai pot. And at this time of year, they provide a real "pick me up" of winter flowers.
