Saffron is one of the most expensive spices you can buy – worth more per gram than gold itself! The orange-red stigma of Crocus sativus are used to flavour many dishes, particularly rice-based recipes, bringing its distinctive yellow colour to brighten your plate. The stigma are picked from the blooms and dried for use later on.
If you’re not a budding chef, there is still plenty to love about this showy autumn-flowering Crocus. Its rich purple blooms brighten the garden just as autumn chills begin to set in. Plant it through borders and rockeries or fill patio pots for a dazzling display. The Saffron Crocus enjoys deep planting in gritty soil and plenty of sun. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 5cm (2").
