Answer: The crocus you are looking for is Crocus sativus, or, Saffron Crocus. The color of the bloom is a royal purple and the source of the saffron, the stigma, are a bright golden orange. It is currently available from Shepherd's Garden Seeds at ph. # (806) 482-3638 or, write them at 30 Irene Street, Torrington, CT, 06790-6658. They provide complete growing and harvesting instruction. Making any paella? One of my favorite saffron inclusive recipes!!
