Florist's Cyclamen, Cyclamen persicum, is in the Primrose Family. Pink and white are the favorite colors for Cyclamen. You will see some good examples when you visit Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA.

 

Subhash Sharma  "These lovely Cyclamen flowers have their name of Medieval Latin origin from 'Cyclaminos'which itself has a Ancient Greek from kyklami´sor kýklos meaning "circle", because of their round tubers. In English, the species of the genus are commonly called by the genus name. In many languages, cyclamen species are colloquially called by a name like the English sowbread, because they are said to be eaten by pigs: pain de pourceau in French, pan porcino in Italian, varkensbrood in Dutch, "pigs' manju" in Japanese. In the language of love, giving someone a cyclamen expresses sincere feelings."

Mr. Sharma is a Facebook friend from India. He now lives in Ireland and frequently comments on my photographs.
