The flowers offer nectar and pollen to bees. The fruit is a round capsule which splits open to reveal 10 smaller seeds. Two flax flea beetles, Aphthona euphorbiae and Longitarsus parvulus may be found on the foliage.The species now cultivated widely in southern and eastern England for linseed oil is the closely related Linum usitatissimum.
