Crocus sativus

An impressive plant bearing up to 5 large, deep lilac flowers stippled in dark purple veins above neat strappy foliage in autumn. From the centre arise 3 large, lolling, vivid crimson stigmas. When dried these are the saffron threads used in various cuisines as a seasoning and colouring agent and among the world’s most costly spices.
