The flaxes range from dwarf alpines to moderately tall herbs (and even a shrub), and include some excellent garden plants. The flared conical flowers are showy, and come in a range of colours, including a splendid light blue.

Linum capitatum 'Gemmell's Hybrid' has mounds of upward-facing, golden-yellow flowers, standing over mounds of grey-green foliage. Bred by Gemmells Nurseries in Ayrshire in the 1940's. Thrives in a stone trough or raised bed.
