In my intro year of gardening, I think saffron flowers have been the easiest for me to grow. I ordered a small batch of edible saffron crocus corms from a seed catalog and planted them in early October. I pretty much forgot about them other than the occasional watering and I woke this morning to two beautiful purple blossoms! They are gorgeous. The saffron strands are a fiery red orange that stand out against the purple and yellow backdrop. I wish I had enough room for a large row of them so I could have fall flowers each year. One day, we’ll make paella with these pretty saffron strands.
