When to plant Flax Seed

We've had good luck with flax seed, but the first time we planted it it didn't really take until the 2nd year. Now we bought more seeds to cover a VERY thistley-weedy area. When is the best time to sow the flax? Spring or Fall?
Technically, we are in Zone 4, BUT we have a micro-climate on our hill that pushes towards Zone 5 - call it Zone 4.5. It's high desert - meaning hot summers with cool nights; winters are cold -10 is not infrequent during mid-winter as a cold snap. I did say "desert" and flax doesn't require water as it grows wild in the hills here. Also we like to xeriscape as much as possible.
