Flax is an annual, 0.3-1 m high, wiry, more or less branching plant with small, unstalked, dark or grayish-green leaves. The flowers are borne on the ends of the stalks. Each flower produces a round capsule in which 1 to 10 seeds develop. There are different cultivars for the production of Linseed oil and flax. Linseed plants are shorter, and their flowers are commonly bright blue, less commonly pale blue or white, while most flax cultivars bear white flowers. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB.
