Christmas Flowers



If you're looking for some winter color, you may want to consider cyclamens. They're prolific bloomers, easily cared for and come back year after year. They've got varigated or solid lily pad like leaves and as the blossoms are spent, the petals fall away cleanly. We've got them in pots on the patio now and with any luck, they'll keep blooming right through spring.

I have them too GW and find them tremendous value - the secret is not to over water them.

Maybe that's what I've been doing wrong, Weaver of Grass! I love cyclamens, but they always die.
