Cyclamen

Cyclamen purpurascens

Description:

This was the only one of this tiny (2cm) purple flower I saw on a six hour hike.

Habitat:

The reference site describes it perfectly: "C. purpurascens grows in deciduous or partly evergreen woods, generally overlying limestone. It also grows in shaded and semi-shaded places amongst rocks and tree-roots."
