Linum lewisii (Blue Flax)


This airy, short-lived perennial is at home in meadow settings, where it blends well with native grasses and other prairie flowers. It is native across much of the western U.S., from 3500 to 9500 feet. Delicate, bright green foliage is adorned in the spring and early summer with sky blue flowers. This plant seeds heavily, and will naturalize in the landscape if water is available. Plant in full sun and well-drained soils.
