(Linum grandiflorum rubrum) Hardy annual. Charming plant for rock gardens, borders, and meadow plantings. The 5-petaled blooms seem to float 12-18 inches above the gray-green foliage, but are actually held there by wiry stems. Flower color is pure white with a striking and unusual red center. Easy from seed, very free-flowering and self-sows readily while never becoming a nuisance. Native to Algeria.
