  • Add a bit of color

    Make a simple container much more dramatic by encircling it with a low bed of colorful flowers. Little boxwood balls make the planting more interesting by adding textural interest.

  • Winter Bedding Color

    Silver or grey foliage looks especially nice with cyclamen. The silver dusty miller foliage complements the flower color and ties in with the silver in the foliage. It also gives a nice lacy relief to the solid clumps of cyclamen leaves.
