Blue Flax (Linum perenne) is easy to grow, bee friendly, and will spread over time. It can tolerate both full sun and part sun, and it is a great choice for dry areas and poor soil. Blue Flax spreads and naturalizes easily in dry soils and most sunny meadows, making it an excellent option for hillsides that you’d like to see covered in wildflowers. The Flax family has been used for years in the manufacture of linseed oil and fabric. This species, Linum perenne, is native to Europe, typically found in the Alps and England, however, it has spread widely in North America. (Note: it is not the same species as Linum lewisii, the Blue Flax species native to the American West, which is the species famous in Native American lore.)
