A flock of heart-shaped petals flare upward and hover over deep sliver-green foliage on the houseplant favorite, cyclamen. Clusters of bowing buds wait to lift up their petals alongside the mass of flared blooms forming months of showy bloom time. You can find colors of red, pink, purple, and white.
For good reason, it has been a popular decorative plant for over a hundred years. If your are looking for a blooming houseplant, the cyclamen* is one of the best.
