Blue Flax - Blue Wonders
One of the most beautiful, of the all-blue flowering plants with blue-green narrow leaves on graceful 2' 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 - 1 " wide flowers. Produces a continual profusion of blooms that each lasts a day, with new ones appearing each morning.
Very adaptable and tolerant of drought, heat and cold weather.
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, flax seed and linseed oil.
Use in borders and rock gardens. Carefree, will self-sow gently.
