Native Flax Wildflowers

12th October 2015

NEW WILDFLOWER DISCOVERY - NATIVE FLAX

I found these "new" wildflowers at Jarowair growing among long grass in a rocky area not far from the creek edge.  Thanks to Martin Bennett and Stewart YaySun for helping with the identification.  They tell me that these beautiful purple flowers growing on long stems are in the Linum family, being L.marginale to be specific.  The common name is Native Flax.
