Poppy seed and flax seed from the same source.

I have been searching websites and catalogs for big pink poppy seed and Blue Flax seed from the same source so I won't have to pay twice the shipping. Is that being too contrary?

I find several sources with one and several sources with the other.

They look nice together. I would like to try a patch of each rather than the few plants I get from the wildflower mix. Any suggestions?

Shouldn't be too hard. Swallowtail Garden Seeds has a terrific selection.

At least online, just like all the others that have pink poppies. Swallowtail Garden Seeds does not have Linum lewisii. To give them the benefit of the doubt they may be calling it ''common flax''. Their pink poppies are in a mixture, not sold separately.

Since pink poppies are fairly common and Linum lewisii is fairly common it is curious that it is difficult to find both.

I just discovered the ''sources'' forum. I will go over there.
