Flax plants wake up with a cheer every morning. In spite of their wispy little stems and small leaves that may nearly disappear in dry weather, flax plants open up a whole bouquet of fresh flowers each day with the rising sun. The plants often droop under the weight of their own exuberance, and all the petals fall off by noon-but just wait until tomorrow, and they will do it all again.
Key Words: Flower parts in fives. Seed capsules like the sections of an orange.
