About Perennial Blue Flax Seeds

Linum perenne

Seed Type Heirloom
Also known as Linseed

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.
