Linum strictum, commonly known as rigid flax, upright flax, and upright yellow flax, is a species of flax that has a rigid stem, from whence it derives its taxonomic name, growing to a height of 10–45 cm. The plant is endemic to the Mediterranean region, and features highly in classical Hebrew and Greek literature, owing principally to its cultivation for its plant fiber, linen, but also for its edible seeds and culinary foliage.
Perennial flax is a wonderful plant! Although the flower blooms one day, more and more new ones bloom to replace it, for two months its airy bush is covered with delicate blue flowers, and single ones bloom all summer - a very ornamental plant. The flower is drought-resistant and unpretentious, I grew it from seeds, and then I just divide the bush in August-September and it takes root well in a new place. Plant flax - you won't regret it!
This plant is useful.
