Cyclamen cilicium is one of the smaller elegant flowering species, lilac pink or white with a honey scent usually October-November.  I've included pictures which give some idea of the flower colour and shapes, which includes a pure white variety.

Cyclamen cilicium is hardy enough for the garden but for me it usually doesn't thrive.
