HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow in late fall or early spring, planting just below the surface of the soil. This species does not transplant well.

Growing: Water occasionally, controlling weeds to allow the seedlings to become established. Full growth and flowering usually does not occur until the second season of growth. Mature plants tolerate drought well, but flourish with occasional watering. Unless the seeds are being harvested, cut back the plant after flowering to allow for new growth next season.

Harvesting: These blossoms do not perform well as cut flowers, and are best enjoyed outdoors.

Seed Saving: Allow the seed pods to dry completely on the stem; break them open to collect the flat, dark seeds. Store them in a cool, dry place.

Blue Flax Seeds

I fell in love with these brilliant blue flowers several years ago. They are not often avaiable in stores, so I was happy to find a place to order. They were quickly shipped to me and I will plant them when the weather is right and enjoy them for years to come. Beautiful blooms on a nice plant!

DESCRIPTION

IN-STOCK ORDERS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY VIA THE US POST OFFICE.

See the sky reflected in a sea of these heavenly blue blooms. This perennial is fast-growing and looks best as a mass planting. It is hard to imagine how this plant produces such a vibrant color from just water and dirt?
Because of the valuable fibers that can be harvested from the stems, this European native once played an important role in the production of linen fabric, ropes, and nets. Though it is no longer used for this purpose, it has become a well loved wildflower for its hardiness and perfect sky-blue color.
