Safflower - Dark Orange-Red

1 Review | Write a Review
Annual. Fantastic deep orange petals that make an excellent saffron substitute. This uncanny similarity to saffron is responsible for safflower’s nickname as “poor man’s saffron”. Not only useful in the kitchen, Dark Orange-Red is a gorgeous ornamental that is a well disguised garden tool. The stiff, almost prickly, plants, have been used for centuries as natural fencing to keep animals out of the garden.

What are the pros? Beautirul

What are the cons? Started slow


These safflowers started a little slow. Once they started growing, it seemed to take forever in the greenhouse to get them taller than 3 inches. After placing them in the garden, they took their time, but when they decided to run, they took off. I have never had safflowers that got so big, so vibrant, so eager to grow. These things are amazing. I will definitely order again, after I run out of seeds. We will see if my seeds from the plants produce next years plants as nice as this years. All I can say is, WOW...
