Dope, whats Safflower???
It's a spice. You can use the petals in cooking or even for tea.
I like putting saffron in some of the dishes I make but it can tend to be expensive sometimes especially if you use it alot.
Safflower is called the poor mans saffron sometimes, I wanted to grow some and see how they compared in taste.
Ahh OK, let us know whats it like... I heard some mad thing a couple years back about bootleg Saffron being imported to Europe (maybe around the world) as its such an expensive commodity... There was some test you could do to check if you had the real thing or not, I guess thats why its called 'red gold'...
edit: just found this video...
Uncovered fake saffron trafficking scheme worth millions of eurosEuropol assisted Spanish authorities in pursuing an organized crime organization that was laundering millions of euros in illicit proceeds from the saffron trade. Before exporting saffron, the criminal network combined real saffron with herbs and chemicals to boost their profit margins. Accoraffidiajournal.com
