      Yes, it is Cyclamen hederifolium 'Album' . Received in Sep.2018.
      I love cyclamens - pink hederifoliums are from little seedlings. And I have one coum pink - will flower later in in winter. I let them to self-seed and more coum and pink hederifoliums sprouted.
      But don't see any new white ones.

        The white ones are lovely, I will venture out there at the weekend and see if I have something similar, definitely worth keeping. We are clearing beds that have been left to take over and unearthing some gems (as well as thorn bushes as thick as tree trunks!).

            The Fuchsia Delta Sarah, looks a nice colour combination for a hardy one Michael.

            When you say hardy, is it only root hardy, or does the top growth survive as well.

                  I agree ... and it is headily scented ... and it is even exceptional ...:heehee:


                  Remember when I questioned it in September 2011 when it was supposed to be the red one? ...

                          @Michael Hewett your unknown Ilex could be 'Silver Queen'.

                          Edit: Or 'Handsworth New Silver'.
