Cyclamen hederifolium

DSCN2950 [Cyclamen hederifolium]
 
This wild species of cyclamen is widespread in mainland Greece and the Aegean islands but it is also wildly cultivated for its beautiful and fragrant flowers that come in shades of pink to (rarely) white.
 
It blooms from September to October in shady areas on heights of 100-1400m.
