Linum lewisii is one of those widespread US prairie/grassland natives (Alaska south to Northern Mexico) that one questions why it isn't more widely seen in gardens. We absolutely love this perennial sub-shrub that forms a 2' tall x 2' wide clump of upright flexible stems, clothed in linear green leaves and topped from spring through summer with terminal cymes of 5-petaled pure blue flowers. In addition to being highly prized by gardeners, it's also a favorite of several native bee species. Linum lewisii was discovered and later named for explorer Meriwether Lewis of Lewis and Clark fame.
