Blue flax is such a simple pretty flower and photo is great. Blue flax grows like a weed around here but I still give it a faire amount space throughout the garden.

Thank you both for your comments! Oddly enough, I haven't had much luck with Blue Flax. The plant in this photo struggled along for a little over a year, and finally died this summer. It is a lovely blue, so I might try again.
