These were in a package of wildflower seeds I planted last year. I think they are so pretty and they bloom early in the morning by afternoon they all fall off but by morning they're blooming again. Does anyone know what they are?

Thanks Konrad. I couldn't get through on the link above but typed in flower and found it. It is a perennial and blooms a long time. It's a wild prarie flower.

gmom74 I have five of them growing in my garden and yes they are very pretty. Seeing that they are perennials I am going to dig one up this fall for my daughter.

They are very beautiful. If you are going to let them go to seed I sure would like a few.

RE: Blue flowers!

Maybe I can find some plants at our farmers market. That would be faster and easier. Why didn't I think of that in the first place?

Beautiful shade of blue! It's hard to find that color in a garden. So many "blues" are more purple or lavender.

Yes indeed blue flax...bought a package of seeds and planted 3-4 yrs ago and they look just beautiful in masses...from the beginning of planting them to when original plant dies is about three-four yrs(just from my experience) but they reseed readily...they are all over my garden!

rc. Very pretty. I love flowers of all kinds. I can buy perennials from a farm market for ninety nine cents each and every year I buy different plants. Some only last one year though. Especially delphiniums.
