Safflower, Zanzibar (Carthamus tinctorius), packet of 30 seeds, organic

Annual. Native to the Mediterranean.   Safflowers, and this Zanzibar strain in particular, have highly colored yellow-red flowers that make an inexpensive substitute for saffron.  Herbalists who get past herbie 101 and start looking onto the comples field of natural dye plants like the dried petals of safflowers, because they can be successfully infused in oil, producing a deep orange coloring agent that can be used in foods, oil infusions, salves and cosmetics.  Plant prefers sun to part shade and poor, dryish soils.  Large seeds are best direct-seeded after last frost.  Harvest flowers once they open, or let mature to produce the oil-rich seed. 

30 Seeds/Pkt., Certified Organically Grown
