Crocus Sativus is commonly known as Saffron. It is a perennial plant which grows up-to 20-30 cm, bearing a maximum of four flowers, each with three detailed crimson red stigmas, which form at the distal end of the carpel. These stigmas, along with the styles and stalks, when dried, are used as a seasoning and colouring agent. Saffron is native to Greece and South West Asia, and is mostly cultivated in Greece. It requires irrigation if cultivated in arid regions. It can withstand any kind of climatic conditions.
