Linum grandiflorum
‘Bright Eyes’

This charming annual flax features 1” white flowers with satin red centers. Held up on thin 18” tall stems that each hold a single flower, this flax is a prolific bloomer, putting on a show all summer long. A forest of slender leaves forms a green understory for the multitude of flowering stems, each waving in the breeze. Best planted in drifts for best effect, this flax combines well with Love-in-a-Mist, perennial coreopsis and corn cockle (Agrostemma). With its low foliage and free flowering habit, Bright Eyes can be used as a cheerful, high ground cover. The flowers are a popular destination for bees and butterflies. Plant in fertile, well-drained soil in sun to light shade. Deadhead for prolonged blooming. May self-seed.
