Linum rupestre - Rock Flax

  Linum rupestre – Rock Flax

Here’s a different look at the Rock Flax, this time from above.  Although not as artistic as the previous photo, this one does have the advantage of making it easier to identify the plant. Note the five petals and the yellow throat. Although not as obvious, another differentiating factor is the spindly stem, that grows upright from one to two feet tall.
