Blue Flax Annual Linum Usitatissimum is a cultivated annual flower. Blue Flax organic seeds are one of the easiest to germinate, and also called Common Flax and Linseed, this quickly growing to 3 feet tall flowering plant features very upright stems that branch out near the base of the main stalk and produces mounds of lovely, sky blue, single blooms that move in the breeze. Annual Blue Flax blooms in late spring and into summer.
Blue Flax Annual Organic is planted as an ornamental, both in gardens, and as a roadside plant where it often forms crowded masses of bright blue flowers. Linum Usitatissimum organic seeds have to be lightly covered with soil for the best germination, and Common Flax has a huge history not only as the source of linen, but also as a food and medicine. The seeds of this flax variety are very high in Omega-3 fatty acids. Annual Flax re-seeds itself and may persist for years in the same location.
