Our Valentine's Day Favorite is Cyclamen purpurascens. Prized for its fragrant dark purplish pink flowers, this variable widely dispersed European denizen hosts a gleaming bed of round silver patterned leaves with violet-imbued undersides. Cyclamen purpurascens adores moderately moist well-drained sites plus deciduous leaf litter, especially from Beech trees, and imparts endearing summer color to a woodland setting.
