C. hederifloium are sometimes called autumn cyclamen but mine are always flowering by July, and mostly continue right through til late November. Flowers before foliage as Fairy says. I haven't got much foliage yet. Hederifolium means like ivy, that's what the leaves look like, (some more than others)
C. coum has flowers and leaves at the same time, a much rounder leaf, flowers around the new year or later depending on weather.
There are lots more species but those are the two most common hardy ones.
