Today I learned about the saffron crocus flower that is used to make the most valuable spice in the world (by weight)-- saffron. It can take 50,000–75,000 plants to produce 1 pound of saffron. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cro…
These plants are toxic to pets: peony, mums, daffodil, lily, tulip, iris, foxglove, dieffenbachia (dumb cane,) autumn crocus, sago palm, and rhododendron/azaleas. petmd.com/dog/infographic…
Saffron crocuses, the flower from which the most expensive spice by weight (saffron) is made, are all genetically identical sterile clones propagated by hand by dividing root corms. They do not occur in the wild. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saf…
Saffron, the world's costliest spice by weight, has been cultivated by humans for at least 3500 years and there are no known Saffron plants in the wild. Scientists still disagree about which part of the world the plant orginated. It takes 150,000 flowers to make 1 kg of Saffron spice. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saf…
