Blue Flax


Available Now!






Blue Flax is a lovely perennial wildflower presenting 1-2-inch delicate, sky-blue flowers with 5 petals on 1-2-foot wiry stems, creating a graceful, airy display as it sways gently in the breeze. This enchanting flower blooms from late spring to mid-summer and brings a touch of elegance and charm to any landscape. Blue Flax thrives in well-drained soil and is drought-tolerant once established, requiring minimal maintenance. They are highly attractive pollinators like bees and butterflies, broad cast for meadows, rock gardens, and wildflower borders. Beyond its ornamental value, Blue Flax has historically been used for its fibers, which can be spun into linen, and its seeds, which are rich in beneficial omega-3 fatty acids.

Also Known As: Perennial Flax, Blue Sapphire Flax, Lewis Lint Flax, Prairie Flax, Alpine Flax, Wild Flax, Evergreen Flax, Blue Linseed, Sky-blue Flax, Mountain Flax.

    Planting Instructions:



    Soil Preparation:

    Remove weeds, large rocks, and litter from the planting area. Till the soil 8-10 inches deep and rake several times to break up large clods. It is best to do this when the soil is dry enough to not stick to garden tools. Loosening the soil will help the plant establish strong roots.


    Plant in late Fall when the ground is below 50F or early Spring. Add 1/2" - 3/4" layer of peat moss, sawdust, or potting soil to top of a mostly sunny and clear area. Broadcast seeds then water to push seeds into area. Keep moist until established. Adaptive, drought-tolerant. Short-lived perennial.

    For flax seeds, harvest after the blue flowers have died back and the bolls have turned tan and started to crack, and seeds are loose; usually 35 days after flowering. Thresh.

    Planting Depth: 1/8 inch
