Intaminatum, C. mirabile, C. pseudibericum, C. repandum (not consistently so in all gardens); many would also place C. cilicium in this group rather than the first but I have found it to be equally as hardy as C. coum. Group Three: Half-hardy Species (will tolerate some frost as low as −4°C (25°F) for a few hours but not prolonged freezing). C. balearicum, C. creticum, C. elegans, C. graecum, C. libanoticum, C. peloponnesiacum. Group Four: Tender Species (best kept frost-free, although some forms will tolerate slight, short-term frost).

Position The edge of woodland, sloping leafy banks, stream sides, shrubberies and areas beneath sheltered walls are all ideal places to plant the hardier cyclamen. They can look delightful among the roots of an old tree or in crevices in the rock garden or in open woodland glades, or even naturalized in grassy places. Cyclamen, like many bulbs, look best in drifts and are rarely as effective on their own.

If water needs to be applied this is best done during the morning so that by nightfall excessive moisture has drained away, leaving the plants dry but the compost moist.
