PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Linum narbonense 'Heavenly Blue' AGM
Perennial flax 'Heavenly Blue'
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Hardy
Flowering period Summer
Height 12-18in/30-45cm
Light preference Full sun
Soil preference Any, but well-drained
Sowing time/depth Autumn to Sping,
This charming, usually short-lived, perennial produces masses of clear blue flowers an inch in diameter and dark-green foliage on wiry stems. The flowers last only a day, but new buds burst daily too, so during summer the plant is always full of colour. It will self-seed but is not a nuisance - just remove plants that appear in undesired positions.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow direct in spring (in milder areas sowings can be made in late summer for over-wintering), gently raking into the soil, thinning to 10-15cm apart. Alternatively, sow thinly, 3mm deep, in modules, keeping one seedling per cell, for planting out later.
