I am not sure how familiar you are with the flowering Cyclamen plant. If planted outdoors, they prefer shade and to be sheltered. Which is where the majority of our Cyclamen are positioned in the garden. However with some spare plants after dividing, George decided to put the leftovers into a spare pot. If they survived well and good, and if they really didn't like being in an open, exposed to all conditions pot - we would surely see the negative results.
I am pleased to advise we have a rebel in our midst. And what a colourful sight on a wet and grey, gloomy day.
