Linum perenne


Known as Perennial Flax, It’s one of our favorites some of its features include soft texture and habit, the contrast of thin silver foliage and striking almost iridescent blue flowers with highlights of purple and yellow in the center. It’s a rebloomer, re-seeder, drought tolerant, attractive to pollinators, can’t go wrong.
