Cyclamen hederifolium | Alpenveilchen | Sowbread

4 May 2011, Cyclamen hederifolium growing inside a glasshouse at the Botanischer Garten der Universitaet Wien. Known in english as the Sowbread or Ivy-leaved cyclamen blooms in autumn. As such, we will use some of the sprouts and leaves which also appears in the painting. The roots on the otherhand are somewhat toxic, and used in homeopathy as a drastic purgative.
