Growing Flowering Flax

Botanical Name: Linum grandiflorum
Life Cycle: annual
Planting Time: spring or summer
Height: 18" to 24"
Exposure: full sun
Soil: rich, well-drained soil
Hardiness:n/a
Bloom Time: summer
Flower: red, pink, white, blue
Foliage: green, narrow and grass-like
Propagation: seeds
Suggested Use: beds, borders, cut flowers
Growing Hints: Sow seeds directly outdoors in fall or in early spring as soon as soil is workable. They should be spaced so plants grow approximately 8 to 10 inches apart. Flax does not transplant well so plant seeds where you want them to grow. Plants flower for only 3 to 4 weeks so interval planting is necessary for continuous flowers.
Interesting Facts: Flax is native to North America and the Common flax variety is used to make linen and linseed oils. It is rarely thought of for use as an annual in flower gardens, despite its tall attractive appearance and blue or white flowers.
