Salmon Bright Eyes

Flax Seeds

a.k.a. Flowering Flax, Scarlet Flax

Linum grandiflorum

Pastel salmon-colored flowers with coppery-orange central eyes bloom profusely in summer. Salmon Bright Eyes flax has been grown in cottage gardens since the 1800s. Airy, 1-1.5 ft mounds of slender, wiry stems allow the satiny, cup-shaped blooms to wander and mingle nicely among other annual flowers like snapdragons, love-in-a-mist, Shirley poppies, and bachelor buttons. Salmon Bright Eyes flax is an excellent nectar source for pollinating insects, and also makes a nice seasonal ground cover for spring-blooming bulbs.

Growing Salmon Bright Eyes Flax Seeds

Bee introduces how to plant

Direct sow flowering flax seeds into prepared seed beds that have been cleared of weeds and have had the top 1 in. of soil loosened. Rake seed in. Press into soil by walking over the area. Keep moist until germination. When kept at 70-75°F, germination is in 14 to 30 days. Can start flowering flax seeds indoors in 2 in. pots; transplant early and gently and do not allow seedlings to become root bound.
