Chicory Dickory Dock

August 27, 2013

This is the Common Chicory, Cichorium intybus. I love the blue of this flower. Did you know that the flowers open and close at the exact same time every day! The leaves can be used in food (endive) and the tap root can be roasted and used as a caffeine free coffee substitute.
