Denault says the saffron flower can be burned by the cold, so needs a thick snow cover to thrive. The flower's biological clock works opposite to that of most crops. The bulbs sprout in the fall, bloom into a fragrant purple flower which only lasts 24 to 48 hours, then reproduces by splitting into more bulbs under the snow. The plant's dormant phase is in the summer.
