Common chicory, Cichorium intybus, is a somewhat woody, perennial herbaceous plant usually with bright blue flowers, rarely white or pink. Various varieties are cultivated for salad leaves, chicons (blanched buds), or for roots (var. sativum), which are baked, ground, and used as a coffee substitute and additive.

It is also grown as a forage crop for livestock. It lives as a wild plant on roadsides in its native Europe, and in North America and Australia, where it has become naturalised. "Chicory" is also the common name in the United States for curly endive (Cichorium endivia); these two closely related species are often confused.

  1. From my childhood I remember, that my mother usually half a teaspoon of this bitter coffee like stuff,to the coffee for the day! Good to see the flower looks beautiful!

  2. Hallo Nick!

    I love cornflowers! How nice that they are always left standing and not destroyed with weed remover.



  3. We have a lot of chicory growing here and I love how the pretty flowers line the roads. I've read the pioneers used chicory to make coffee. But up close, what a pretty flower with such a lovely shade of blue. Thanks for showing it.

  4. We have it in Virginia. The first place I noticed it growing was along railroad tracks. I like to think it traveled here by train.

  5. Love to visit your blog, its amazing!
