Scarlet Flax (Linum grandiflorum)

It's so rewarding to start Linum seeds and grow this charming Scarlet Flax! Once established this variety can tolerate immense heat and extremely dry conditions though it will need watering at the height of summer. Seedlings need moderate watering to get started, although spring rainfalls are usually sufficient. Scarlet Flax flowers are glossy, deep scarlet red, and they bloom in profusion and are best admired if planted densely. Linum Scarlet Flax prefers full sun in well-drained soils. It often re-seeds and will be back the next spring!
