Bottoms up - looking down on the bottom of cyclamen blooms (sc 2018-01-30)
In this variety, the undersides of the petals (the sides that face away from the reproductive parts of the blooms) are pale with purple stripes, and the upper sides are a deep cherry red or fuchsia pink.
Cyclamen blooms typically face downward, and when young are everted, with the upper sides of the petals up-turned and facing outwards. But once the up-curved petals begin to droop, the undersides of the petals come out on top.
