Saffron Crocus

Crocus sativus

Discover our Saffron Crocus!

From this beautiful, fall-blooming crocus comes true Saffron, a highly prized and highly priced spice that has been used for flavoring since ancient times. The spice is found on showy, thread-like stigmas in each delicate lilac bloom. Easy to grow in the Pacific NW and other areas with similar climates, Saffron Crocus prefers good spring rains, mostly dry summers and temperatures that stay above minus 10° F.  Plants grow from corms, which can be dug, divided and replanted to encourage more plants.

USDA Zones 6-9.
