One of the easiest wildflowers to grow from seed, Blue Flax provides charming light blue blooms in the early season meadow. With is medium height and delicate airy foliage, this perennial is a good choice for lining walkways and garden borders, too, where it will return year after year. Very tolerant of dry, sandy soils, Blue Flax will grow in almost any sunny spot. All of the seed we carry at American Meadows is non-GMO, neonicotinoid-free, and guaranteed to grow. (Linum perenne)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information
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. Though Linum perenne is native to Europe, typically found in the Alps and England, 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.) For planting information, see our guide: How To Grow Flax
