Blue Flax Linum Usitatissimum is an cultivated annual flower that is planted as an ornamental, both in gardens, and as a roadside plant where it often forms crowded masses of bright blue flowers. These are annual plants—unlike the perennial wild blue flax—that reseed themselves and may persist for years in the same location. There are other differences between the wild and cultivated plants. The wild flax has slightly wider leaves and is lighter in color.

Blue Flax Linum Usitatissimum has a huge history not only as the source of linen, but also as a food and medicine. The seeds of this variety are very high in Omega-3 fatty acids. Besides that, it is awfully pretty. Quickly growing to 3 feet tall with very upright stems that branch out near the base of the main stalk, it is topped in late Spring and into Summer with lovely, sky blue, single blooms that move in the breeze.

The plant is easy to grow.
