Crocus sativus - Saffron Crocus Bulbs (Corms)

  • Catalogue Code 2100-2906

These autumn-flowering, Saffron crocus bulbs are renowned for their long red stigma. These are commercially grown to produce saffron, gathered and dried to give a spice that, at times, has been more valuable than gold.

The translucent purple flowers will brighten up the garden and you'll get some home grown saffron to use in the kitchen too.
