Saffron Crocus (sun to part shade) : 4", Saffron is the world's most expensive spice, but did you know it is derived from a fall-blooming crocus? Saffron crocus bears the bright-orange stigmata that is the source of saffron. As a matter of fact, you can grow your own saffron. When the blooms open pick off the stigmata and dry them or throw a few in a pot of rice for seasoning and coloring. In the garden, saffron crocus begins blooming in mid autumn and is colorful for weeks. The flowers are true blue with three, bright-orange, very-long stigmas. The flowers are about four inches tall and bloom at the same time the foliage is present. (three bulbs per each) - $8 each or 3 for $22.80 - You save $1.20!
