In the December issue of The Irish Garden there’s 2 pieces about cyclamen, one on p5 which start into flower in dec and one on p71 which talks about them being in flower since early august….are they the same kind of cyclamen? how long should August flowering ones last?

On page 5, Cyclamen coum is a late winter and spring-flowering species. On page 71, Cyclamen hederifolium is an autumn-flowering species, lasting about 4 or 5 weeks in flower.
