Drought Tolerant Plant: Flax

Last week, there were some questions about what plant was in the Look! Planting in Rows post. Well, it's flax and it comes in a bunch of different sizes and colors. We took some time to see how other people have been using them, jump below for some views from the neighborhood:

That last photo is from a local nursery. When you go in, find the full sun area and then check out the different flaxes. Some grow up to 9 feet tall and some will stay a foot tall. All of them like a lot of sun, well drained soil and aren't too demanding in terms of water use. If you choose a smaller version you'd probably be able to get away with keeping it in a container as long as it was getting lots of sunlight!
