This book deals with cyclamen, a genus of only 23 species popular amongst gardeners, growers, botanists and enthusiasts alike. Native to parts of Europe, western Asia and parts of North Africa; cyclamen are also highly cultivated plants. This new work contains a wealth of information gleaned from the practical experiences of the Cyclamen Society and other cyclamen experts, on both plants in the wild and in cultivation. The book covers the botany of all taxa, including taxonomic description, flowering period, distribution and habitat based on scientific studies and fieldwork by cyclamen experts. Information is provided on cyclamen cultivation and propagation, with dedicated sections on cultivation in North America, Japan and Australasia. Other chapters cover the history of cyclamen, including a review of its use in botanical art from 1st Century AD to present, cyclamen in literature, and the use of cyclamen in ceramics, pottery, glassware, stamps, jewelry and postcards. The text is illustrated throughout with over 700 colour photographs and illustrations and 25 newly commissioned paintings of each of the species.
