Description for Kesar (crocus)

The domesticated saffron crocus, Crocus sativus, is an autumn-flowering perennial plant unknown in the wild. It probably descends from the eastern Mediterranean autumn-flowering Crocus cartwrightianus, which is also known as "wild saffron".

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
saffron crocus purple March 0.25 to 0.50 feet easy to grow

Planting and care

  • Loosen the soil to a depth of 12 to 15 inches.
  • The deep planting encourages the developing stem to send out roots to help stabilize the plant and perhaps eliminate the need for staking.
  • Also, deep planting keeps lily bulbs cool when temperatures soar.

    Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
    Full sun to part shade well-drained soil Medium 27 °C Apply any organic fertilizer

    Caring for Kesar

    • Keep lilies mulched so that their roots are cool. The mulch should feel moist but not wet.
    • Apply a high-potassium liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks from early spring until 6 weeks after flowering.
  • Typical uses of Kesar

    Special features: The bulbs multiply amazingly well, naturalize beautifully in lawns, and provide a splash of early color.

    Culinary use: Saffron also contributes a luminous yellow-orange colouring to foods.

    Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose. Its generally kept indoor in living room and in terrac area.
