I never fail to be delighted by the sight of such flowers making their way to life through these little gaps in the rocks. Thank you, Hans.

Fantastic, Hans, thank you for showing them.
We have seen Cyclamen growing in impossibly small rock crevices in Cyprus and still try to make a nice bed for them in our own garden.

The corms are horribly distorted but I assume that they put down long roots like any other crevice plant. Absolutly no chance of getting one to just 'fall' out of the rocks.
