Botany

 

 Fleur de safran Leaves

The leaves of crocus sativus are narrow, straight and dark green in colour. They develop after the flowers have opened and may reach 30 to 50cm by spring. It is their base, once dried, which will form the bulb tunic.

The crocus sativus being a deciduous plant, they will detach from the parent bulb in spring, following flowering.
