One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Linum stelleroides collected by Kevin Tunison
A pretty blue flax from Siberia, I put eight of these out last year and all did well save for the three? swallowed up by the Azerbaijani Anchusa. This spring only one returned and this is it. We'll have to identify it now that it's flowering; it's pretty clearly not the common garden Flax.
