Linum perenne 'Lewisii'
A California native, the Blue Flax has adapted well in most regions. Its long stems are bluish-gray, and the narrow leaves help make this the perfect background for lovely, 5-petalled pale blue flowers. The blooms open in the morning and have dropped by evening. It remains in bloom all summer, from May through September. The plants are 1-2' and prefer a light, well-drained or sandy type of soil in full or part sun. -Holland Wildflower Farm
