Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Deloresw On Oct 17, 2007, Deloresw from Austin, TX (Zone 8b) wrote:

I have had a wonderful experience in Austin, TX with my cyclamen. The ones planted in the yard bloomed continuously from November last year until early summer. Their blooms look like happy little faces and especially like the cold weather.

I only have one problem--my cyclamen have been identified on this website as Family, Primulaceae; Species, Pseudibericum. I know it is not identified correctly, because that species only lists the color pink and I am in Zone 8b. Mine are pink, red, coral, and lavender so I think they should be listed under the species "persicum."

Does anyone know how to get the species corrected?
