Linum lewisii is native to Western Canada and US.

Wild Blue Flax is a short-lived perennial with blue-green needlelike leaves on graceful 2-foot-tall stems. Satiny sky blue flowers, borne on wiry stems, appear in late spring, last through mid-summer, and open fully only on sunny days. Small rounded seed heads form in summer. Cut these back if you don't want it to seed out.

Grow in lean, well-drained soil and full sun. Cut back to sedum-like basal growth in formal plantings or leave spent flower stems behind to blend in with a naturalistic setting. It is fantastic in xeriscape or rock gardens or containers.
