Blue Flax

Blue Flax (Linum perenne lewisii) is a common Front Range wildflower. I usually see it later in the summer when things are really dry. It blooms from May to August all the way from the plains to the Subalpine zone.

Close up of Blue Flax from the Mesa Trail in Boulder. This specimen is more muted in color than the one above.
