Scarlet Flax on Ruby Tuesday
Synonyms: Red Flax, Flowering Flax, Adenolinum grandiflorum, Linum coccineum
It’s Ruby Tuesday again and I shot a picture of this flower on Sunday for this post. I am trying to take a few nice red flower pictures and Ruby Tuesday has challenged me to try it. One thing I have tried with a little better results is to turn the color setting on my camera from Vivid to Normal.
Flax is an interesting plant. I have been growing two little patches of Blue Flax (Linum perenne) it seems to be a true perennial. I haven’t gotten many seedlings from them. This Scarlet Flax was growing in a seed tray outside of the Bartlett Arboretum Greenhouse and really captivated me.
