Lewisii flax sends more stems from the base, so it is slightly 'bushy' in appearance. Dazzling blue blossoms on graceful stems adorn this beautiful native wildflower. It is easy to grow from seed, requires little care, and is drought tolerant. The intense blue flowers create a sensation when they appear in spring and last until the small rounded seed-heads form in late summer.
