The saffron plant (Crocus sativus) is a perennial plant that grows from a bulb and flowers in the fall. The spice actually comes from the stigma of the saffron flower, which is separated and dried. 
They are used extensively in the cosmetics, pharmacy, and textile-dye industries, as well as in cookery. The saffron flower is purple, but the spice is a bright red. Saffron needs a lot of effort to grow and harvest, which is why the price is so hefty.
