Product Description

One of our favorites, Blue Flax, is a classic American native wildflower. This perennial version is also often known as Linum lewisii in honor of explorer Meriwether Lewis who remarked upon this species in his journals. Blue Flax prefers full sun, but can tolerate some partial shade as well. Blue Flax is an early bloomer in most climates and a colorful harbinger of spring.

    How to Plant Perennial Blue Flax

    About Flax

    Flax is easy to grow from seed and surprisingly adaptable to a range of conditions. A classic for the Cottage Garden look, flax is also commonly used in meadows and roadside plantings.

    When to Plant Flax Seeds

    As a cool-season variety, sow flax seeds as soon as the ground can be worked in the Spring. Seedlings with at least two leaves can survive a late-season frost. In temperate climates, an early-Fall planting is an option as well.

    Where to Plant Flax Seeds

    Grow flax in Full-Sun and rich, well-draining soil. Although flax can be adaptable when it comes to soil types, it's best to Amend the soil in your planting area with organic matter, compost, or manure when the soil is poor. Flax can struggle in clay or wet soil.

    How to Plant Flax Seeds

    Direct sow seeds onto the surface of the soil via broadcast, and compress. Do not cover the seeds as they require sunlight to germinate. Water well after seeds are sown.

    How to Care for Flax

    Once established, Flax requires little care. While not requiring staking, Flax does sport spindly stalks, so support from companion plants can be beneficial. Collect seeds at the end of the season to broadcast for future planting, and clear growth once it dies back.

Blue, blue and beautiful

These blue flax flowers are so beautiful. It took a while for them to bloom, but well worth it! They bloomed later in the summer the first year and I was so excited because they are sweet and very blue flowers. Seemed like they lasted in bloom for a long time since each flower only lasts for about a day or two and a new flower would open in it's place.

These drought tolerant gems are one of my favs. Your seeds i recieved also seemed to sprout faster then the ones bought from the Depot. You won't see blooms the 1st planting season, but come next spring these are beautiful. Plant a hearty amount of seeds together to get abundant blooms for weeks in the spring year after year.
