Hi John,

If you type Tulipa or Tulip into the search box at the top you will see loads of results for the Tulipa genus.

Hope that helps.

Question from John Barnett

In forum: How to use the site

I was searching to see if there was a Tulipa Mixed in the database and the results returned hundreds of plants mostly not Tulipa, how do I do a specific search to discard the unwanted results.

Re: As this gras will just be foliage all summer, can you tell me how it looks before it flowers?

In forum: Muhlenbergia capillaris

Hi Fiona,

We have had some response from our social media. These are the answers from our social media friends and followers:
"Think it's not particularly showy. There's a cultivar, M. capillaries 'Fast Forward' that blooms a bit earlier. Great plant!" - Perhaps if you plant both plants you could have a longer display of flowers.

Also we received a photo of the plant before flowering.

If you had some spring bulbs, for example, tulips to come up around the grass tufts it would look quite simple and pretty. Then when the tulips had past the M. capillaries 'Fast Forward' would start to put on flowers followed but the standard later flowering M. capillaries.

How does all that sound? I hope the photo and suggestions helped.
Thanks for asking the question,
Tania from Shoot

Re: Alternatives to Buxus for pyramid "topiary"?

Message from Samantha Jane

In forum: Ornamental plants

Hi there,
Very interesting question and what sounds like a lovely design. I work with topiary a lot and I know of no tree/shrub that will flower well when it is pruned that tightly to keep to the pyramid shape. All topiary will flower but either insignificant flowers or only when the shoots are left to grow a bit like a standard fuchsia or rose. The only thing that I can think of; could be used to make these pyramids look different would be lighting, maybe fairy lights, it can work well in some designs, particularly contemporary.
I would also have thought that matt green foliage would look best adjacent to the Lavender?
How about, also filling the beds with bulbs, e.g. Tulipa 'Maureen' to give interest at this time of the year.
All the best with it!
Looking forward to hearing more
Best wishes,
Samantha Jane, MIHORT, KEWDIP

Tulipa Aleppo - a late flowering fringed variety. Considered one of the most elegant tulips, introduced in the late 1960s. Hope this helps.
