This plant appears to be a very small example of a Cyclamen growing out of a stony path at the back of my house in Milton Keynes. The path has several of these plants that seem to flower at the same time of year (early Spring). It is spontaneous occurrence and exists along with a large number of other wildflowers particularly wild herbs and orchids. The path is well drained and this part is shaded for most of the day getting the late afternoon sun. The path consists of 5-10 cms of stones over an impermeable membrane. You can see that the plant is very small with flowers a little more than 1cm across. Each plant has about three flowers and a similar number of leaves.
