Forever Green has been active in researching and breeding perennial flax species (Linum species) that provide a similar nutritional profile as golden flax, but also provide important ecosystem services as a perennial crop. Under agricultural management in Minnesota, some perennial flax accessions could be harvested twice a year, in June and September, providing forage for pollinators at times when annual flax and other bee-pollinated crops are not flowering. Perennial flax is unique because of its ability to also be an ornamental bedding plant and a cut flower crop.
