Scarlet Flax

(Linum grandiflorum rubrum) 

Scarlet flax is an annual native to North Africa and southern Europe. It grows to a height of 30.5 to 61 cm (12 to 25 in.) with needle-like, grayish-green leaves. The large, bright red flowers last only a single day, but new blooms appear daily throughout the bloom period of April to August.

Scarlet flax is quite heat and drought-tolerant. It prefers a light, well-drained soil and can be grown in full sun or light shade. Broadcast seed 0.3 to 1.3 cm (? to ½ in.) deep either in the fall or early spring. It reseeds readily.
