2..Cyclamen Purpurascen.
3..Cyclamen Victoria.
4..Cyclamen Persicum.

6..Cyclamen Hederifolium.


No 1....Flowers in the depths of Winter...Jan' to March.
No 2... Blooms in Summer and Autumn.
No 3...Winter Colour.
No 4...Blooms in Winter.
No 5...Blooms in Spring.
No 6...Blooms from Winter to Spring...this Specie self Seeds freely...

Hope this helps a bit...

Aren't Cyclamens more woodland plants? Would they grow in a container, or would it get too exposed for them? Just wondering, as I've never grown them.

I've planted them in Containers before and never had any problems...I just kept them well watered and fed and weed free and nature did the rest...maybe I was lucky and being the Mule Head that I am I dont always conform to rules...I like to do what I think looks nice and if it does not work try something else...

I'm not saying what I'm doing is right but they worked for me...all of the Cyclamen I named are hardy and can survive Temperatures of up to -20* degrees according to several expert Gardening Sites...
