Gathering Saffron in Navelli (Abruzzo, Italy). Saffron is obtained by collecting the flower stamens of a very specific iris flower. It is difficult work and that is the reason why saffron is so expensive.
INDISCREET - This iris was introduced into the American Iris Society in 1988 by J. Ghio and was given HM in 1990. Standards are magenta. Falls are salmon with heavily stitched magenta at the edges and tangerine beards. Re-bloomer. $3.50
