If you had the time and the space you could really strike gold with this small flower as Crocus Sativus is the plant which produces the highly-prized (and priced) dark yellow spice, Saffron. However, there’s no need to be disappointed when you learn that there’s a reason why this showy autumn Crocus’ spice costs so much: It takes around a 150 of these small plants (and some careful harvesting and drying) to nett about one gram of the spice.

Crocus Sativus flowers attract colourful butterflies, bees and other pollinators, who play a key role in your garden!

However, even if you don’t have the patience to go commercial with regard the spice, you’ll still have struck gold with the display this lilac Saffron Crocus, flashed with deep purple and sporting a long red stigma, produces.
