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
