Named in honor of Meriwether Lewis of Lewis & Clark, being it was discovered on their expedition across the plains. As a member of the flax family, this species is important in the production of linseed oil and fabric.

A wonderdul plant with lovely flowers and interesting foilage. I grew this from seed and most have survived since 2006 when I first grew these from seed. I lived in Central Illinois River Valley.
