I have used the styles of Crocus cartwrightianus as saffron and they're
fine, just rather shorter than those of the cultigen C. sativus, selected
somewhere millennia ago for its exceptional style length.

	I have heard it said that Crocus cartwrightianus is used as a
saffron substitute*, but I confess I have never tried, grown or sniffed it.
