(Crocus sativus) These beautiful small, fall-blooming perennials produce true Saffron, a highly prized and highly priced spice that comes from the thread-like stigmas in the attractive lilac and mauve flowers.

Plants grow from corms, which can be dug, divided and replanted to encourage more plants. USDA Zones 6-9. 2 1/4 inch pot.
