Comment on a listing
thanks Kathy for your reply regarding my plant I.D.
I have posted some more pics, to try and get a better view of it, although I am disappointed with the image that eventually shows on the site. It makes it quite hard to see.
If anyone else has a different idea, let me know.

Re: Is it a Cyclamen or Erythronium
I’d definitely be inclined to say erythronium rather than cyclamen, the foliage of cyclamen tends usually to be more squat and heart shaped than strappy like this. However I am more than prepared to be proved wrong! You can never be too sure in horticulture.
Why don’t you try sending a sample to the RHS identification service if you’re a member? It would be interesting to find out for definite, not least because of it being such a beautiful specimen.
Keep us posted.
p.s. If you click on each image that you've uploaded you can see an enlarged version which shows the plant much more clearly.

Plant I.D solved
I have solved the mystery of Cyclamen or Erythronium. It is neither, it is a Dodecatheon dentatum (Shooting Stars) an American primula relative which comes under the umbrella of Rock Plants.
Tried clicking on each image to enlarge but nothing happens, only a 'close' sign comes up. Maybe its my computer not liking it.
