    Just come back from a woofer walk and noticed these....they are tiny. Are they a type of cyclamen?

        We have them growing in our garden. Not as rampant as the violet ones.

        I've spent hours over the last couple of weeks digging out the violet ones as they are spreading like mad all over the garden. Surprisingly tough rooted little 'individuals'!
