Remarks:
Saffron Crocus (Crocus sativus). There are other crocuses that flower late in the year - e.g. Colchicum and Crocus speciosus, (both of which are called 'Autumn Crocus') but at least one of them is deadly poisnous, and they they don't have the long, deep orange stigmas that make Saffron Crocus so valuable.
