Today’s Featured Flower Photo of the Day:
Lewis Blue Flax
Here is today’s featured photo flower presentation. To let the is year shine bright, I am featuring fine photos of flowers, continuing to honor the brighter side of life again this year. Today’s Flower of the day is the Lewis Blue Flax.
The Lewis Blue Flax, or the Linum Austriacum (Linum Lewisii family) is often referred to as a wildflower, but not an invasive variety, and intriguingly beautiful–a sun lover, in that the flowers open only on sunny days. The 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 the late spring, lasting through midsummer. The Blue Flax has a mildly poisonous flowers, but ingestible berry, so not a friendly variety to grow around animals. The actual seed is in the plant family used to manufacture some drugs and vitamin supplements friendly to curing digestive issues. The flowers on the Flax grow to the size of 1 to 1-1/2 inches diameter. They love sunny days and only a modest amount of shade, and require not too much water–a drier variety of flower not prone to growing in a wetland.
