A Monograph of the Genus Crocus is a botanical work authored by George Maw and published in 1886. This monograph focuses on the genus Crocus, which includes various species of flowering plants in the iris family, including the saffron crocus (Crocus sativus). Crocus species are known for their colorful flowers and are cultivated for various purposes, including saffron production.

In this monograph, George Maw provides a detailed and comprehensive examination of the Crocus genus. He covers aspects such as taxonomy, morphology, distribution, and cultivation of various Crocus species. The book also includes an appendix by C.C. Lacaita that explores the etymology of the words "crocus" and "saffron," shedding light on their historical and linguistic origins.

Maw's work is significant for botanists, horticulturists, and anyone interested in the study of crocus species. It serves as an important reference for understanding the diversity and characteristics of these plants, particularly the saffron crocus, which is famous for its prized spice, saffron.
