Wild crocuses
Wild crocuses
Crocus is a genus of flowering plants in the iris family. Wild crocuses can be found in woods, scrub, and meadows from sea level to alpine tundra in central and southern Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, on the islands of the Aegean, and across Central Asia to Xinjiang Province in western China. In gardens they are cultivated for their flowers which, according to species, appear in autumn, winter or spring. The name is derived from the Sanskrit word kunkuman, meaning saffron, and indeed the spice is obtained from the stigmas of
Crocus sativus, an autumn-blooming species. Cultivation and harvesting of Crocus sativus for saffron was first documented in the Mediterranean, notably on the island of Crete. See > Link for a wider view of this location.
