Cichorium intybus

Cichorium intybus

Common name common chicory
Family asteraceae
Life cycle
Flowers blue (July)
Size 2-3'
Light sun

This wildflower colors the roadsides blue in summer. And, as you can see in the photo, the less frequently tended parts of our lawn as well. Coarse-textured and stalky, it's hard to see using this as an ornamental, even though its flowers are very pretty. Not an important weed of garden areas.

This is a weed in our garden
