Linum lewisii

Western N. America. The blue green needle-like foliage of Linum lewisii is soft to the touch and feathery in appearance. Long arching stems bear terminal clusters of blue flowers that open in the morning and fade in the afternoon. This is a mountain plant and needs good drainage, lean soil and full sun. It is not long-lived in the garden but does self sew. Always leave a few seedlings behind when you weed. Beautiful and evergreen in our mild climate.

Summer  2-3 ft. x 2-3 ft.
