Love to see crocus welcoming us to Spring. Did you know that crocus also bloom in the Fall? It always surprises me to see crocus blooming in my garden in September. (You plant Fall crocus bulbs 'in September' and they bloom the following September. They also multiply too.)

Saffron crocus (Crocus sativus) This is the most expensive spice in the world, and you can grow it.

Saffron is the spice derived from the vivid crimson/orange 3 stigmas of Crocus sativus. At about $1,000 lb, an average pound contains about 50,000 flowers...all harvested by hand.

The flower of Saffron Crocus [Crocus sativus] is large and showy. The three pronged style and stigmata are an exceptional feature of this flower and the source of saffron spice.

olchicums look like fall-blooming crocuses on steroids: The big cup-shaped blooms appear seemingly out of nowhere in fall and create a bright show of pink or white. Name: Colchicum autumnale

Saffron is obtained from the saffron crocus, a flower that has lilac coloured petals..... all about saffron
