Linum lewisii

Blue Flax

Tall, almost grass-like light blue flowered annual - though it can live for years in our mild climate. About 18 inches high, this is very similar to the commercial flaxseed plant sold for it's healthy seed. The seeds are poisonous raw, but make a delicious super-food when cooked.
