Presumably these are winter cyclamen, the small flowered forms now available.

These are quite hardy and can be used for winter pots, but are not all that persistent in the ground.

If these are autumn cyclamen, with small flowers, they are very persistent, given well-drained even dry soil.

The tubers are set at soil level.
