Safflower

Safflower is sometimes called False Saffron. It is botanically known as Carthamus tinctorius. Safflower is native to the Mediterranean and Western Asia were it was cultivated as a source of yellow and red dye. Safflower is available seasonally usually from late spring thru late November. Bunches are quite large measuring 24″ or more in overall length with 10 stems per bunch. Vase life is excellent varying from 7 to 14 days depending on bud stage and environmental conditions. Safflower is considered a medium filler flower. Safflower flowers dry well if hung upside down in a dark area.
