This crocus species, in cultivation since the Middle Ages, is grown even today for the long orange-red stigmas which are dried to make the dye, flavoring agent and medicine called saffron. Blooming in October, the rich purple flowers boast yellow anthers and an intense orange-scarlet, trilobed style. Plant in rich sandy, well-drained soil. Bulbs planted in the fall may not flower until the following fall; however, once established they multiply rapidly and should be divided every 4 to 6 years. Native to eastern Europe and western Asia. 188/sq. yd. Sold in packages of 12.
