My cyclamen are resting? #737552

Asked January 29, 2021, 12:37 PM EST

I’ve got cyclamen in two pots outside my front door. One cyclamen looks great and the other cyclamen are lying flat. Any ideas why? Will it come back? Do I just need to prune it?

Clackamas County Oregon

Expert Response

Thank you for your question. Cyclamen die if they are in areas where temperatures are below 50 degrees at night. So it is freezing. I can't predict whether it will survive, but bring it indoors to see. Here is an Extension article on this species: https://lancaster.unl.edu/hort/factsheets/324Cycla.pdf Good luck!

I thought “hardy cyclamen” were hardier than that?

Perhaps you have a florist's cyclamen, rather than a hardy variety. https://ucanr.edu/blogs/blogcore/postdetail.cfm?postnum=25277
