Blue Flax

(Linum lewissi) 

Blue Flax is a perennial native to the prairies, plains and mountains of the western United States. It grows to a height of 30.5 to 91 cm (12 to 36 in.) with medium green, finely divided leaves. The five-petal flowers are sky-blue, measuring 1.3 to 2.5 cm (½ to 1 in.) in size. Each flower only lasts a day, but new flowers appear every day from May to September.

Blue Flax is a plant of open habitats and requires full sun. It grows robustly on soils ranging from alkaline to acidic as long as the soil is well drained and dry. In a garden, it should not be watered excessively. Broadcast seed 0.6 to 1.9 cm (¼ to ¾ in.) deep and cover lightly. Germination is enhanced by light. Seed may be planted in either spring or fall. Increase seeding rate for harsh sites.
