Beautiful lavender flowers with brilliant red filament appear in the Fall. It is the red, threadlike filaments that you will pluck and collect for your kitchen spice/herb cabinet. It does not take many of these threads to color and flavor rice, which is how it is traditionally used -- especially in paella. They are so expensive, though, literally worth their weight in gold. And when bought in the grocery store, you have no way of knowing if they are in fact safe to eat. Grow your own and be sure, and they will come back year after year and multiply! You will receive 15 large #1  bulbs which you should plant right away as they will bloom this Fall if put in the ground soon enough. If not, they will over-winter in-ground and you will enjoy the blooms and saffron next Fall. 
Harvesting: When each blooms, carefully pick the red threads and either dry or make saffron water to freeze as follows: Spread threads just harvested on parchment and lightly roast (low temp for short period) before infusing in water. Then freeze the water in teaspoonfuls in ice cube trays and when hardened transfer to a freezer bag for future use.

Now Shipping ...

Items listed as "Ships Now" ship within 1-2 business days (non-holiday Monday-Friday). We reserve the option to hold small seed orders when a variety (as noted on the listing as "coming") is not yet in until the order can be filled completely. For larger orders, we ship what is available and back-order the remainder. Live plants ship when weather and your zone permit. By the way, once your order leaves our hands it will be in the hands of the shipping carrier, usually USPS, which is experiencing delays due to high volume. If you have any questions, please email us using the contact link on the website. Thank you!
