These hardy cyclamens are miniature treasures - the tiny pink blooms are 
about three inches high and have lovely little heart-shaped foliage about an inch 
across with silver markings.  If they like the spot they form a mat of foliage 
- but they don't stay all year.  In my garden they seem to like a dry spot 
with partial sun, but I know someone who grows them in full sun, so perhaps some 
more knowledgable person can give you better advice.  They seem to be 
perfectly hardy here in Z5, however.
Wish I knew more to tell you - they're lovely.  Auralie
