Wild Blue Flax (Linum lewisii) is a native perennial with true-blue saucer-shaped flowers. These lightweight flowers bloom on top of tall, thin stems that remain upright, but sway with the breeze. Each flower only lasts one day, but makes up for it by blooming profusely for weeks on end. Pollinators can enjoy these blooms from late spring to midsummer, and you can too!
