Traditionally Safflower was grown from herb seeds for its flower used in coloring and flavoring food, making dyes for silk or wool, and medicine. The safflower herb makes a suitable replacement for expensive saffron.
It is one of the oldest crops harvested by humans and was used as a dye by the ancient Egyptians as far back as the 12th century. Commercially, it is important as a source of good quality cooking oil.

Select a location to grow Safflower that is in full sun. This plant does well in average to good soils that is well-draining. The soil should be deep, as the taproot can grow up to 10 feet deep in search of moisture. Sow or plant seeds after the last frost in your area. When sowing seeds outdoors, they should be planted at a depth of 1/4 inch in light soil in the early spring, before the season's last frost. When growing Safflower seeds indoors, they should be sown in peat pots about eight weeks before being transplanted outdoors after the danger of frost has passed. The seedlings should be planted with a spacing of 6 - 10 inches in a sunny part of the garden. Protection from rabbits may be needed.
