Cyclamen is a perennial tuberous plant that is most often grown as an annual, and is typically discarded some time in the spring.
The tender, indoor kinds of cyclamen, as well as poinsettias, Christmas cactus and bowls of bulbs will need watering more often but no plants grow as vigorously in winter as in summer, and annuals like cineraria will die if overwatered.
African violets (pictured) as well as cyclamen, must be watered from beneath, and bulbs suffer if the compost is allowed to dry out.
The cyclamen, incidentally, is the only winter-flowering pot plant which appreciates being fed while actually in bloom.
Other plants which look great in silver planters include the attractive purple evergreen heuchera Stormy Seas, along with silver-leaved convolvulus cneorum and pink cyclamen persicum which flowers in autumn or early spring.
