off the thread

So as an off-thread query,

The missus has decided she wants to grow some Saffron crocus plants.
Yes, I told her she would have to grow many plants in order to get a
reasonable number of anthers, and yes I told her that we don't grow
in a good climate for this, but she wants to try. I suppose that since
I grow wetland plants in a desert, I am not in a position to criticize.

So, does anyone have a good source for crocus, specifically the species
used to obtain saffron (_Crocus sativus_)?
