Blue Flax is one of the most beautiful of the all-blue flowering plants with blue-green narrow leaves on graceful 2 foot tall stems. This native wildflower offers profuse, satiny, sky-blue flowers each morning, from early to late summer. Easy to grow and quick to establish, it will flush with blooms starting its second year. Grows from expanding clumps of stalks with 1/2 to 1 inch wide flowers. Produces a continual profusion of blooms that each lasts a day, with new ones appearing each morning.
This species is named "lewisii" in honor of Meriwether Lewis of Lewis & Clark, since it was discovered on their expedition across the plains. A source of flax fiber, flaxseed and linseed oil.
Use in borders and rock gardens. Carefree, will self-sow gently. Very adaptable and tolerant of drought, heat and cold weather.
