Pretty little sky-blue flowers, 1/2" to 1" across bloom on light and graceful arching branches. Although blue flax will stand up well to heat, it prefers cool coastal summers, and it will bloom longer in cool coastal climates. For best effect, blue flax needs to be sown in mass, and is perfect for wildflower meadows and naturalized areas. If sown early enough, it will bloom the first year. Plant in spring, late summer, or late fall.
