Dried Carthamus Natural Orange Bunch:

With its thistle like structure, Carthamus or Bidens as it is sometimes known?is available in natural green or natural orange colours. Carthamus tinctorius is sometimes referred to as false saffron or Safflower. Safflower is one of humanities oldest crops. Ancient textiles have even been identified as being dyed using safflower. The other really amazing fact is that flower garlands made from safflowers were found in the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun!

Today this flower is commercially grown for its oil and the flowers are still used to create natural dyes. However, our crop is grown and dried in Holland and is an extremely popular flower within dried flower arrangements. Great value bunches with a length of 60-70cm. Finally, they can be slightly prickly so take care when handling!
