Series: "Wild flowers of Crete"

Cyclamen creticum (Cretan sowbread) is endemic to the Greek islands of Crete and Karpathos, where it grows in shady places where it is protected from the sun either by shrubs or by growing in gullies, rock fissures or north facing banks. The flowers are pure white with sometimes a slight pink shading. It has a corolla without protuberances and the leaves resemble those of the ivy.
