$1.85 $3.70
Chicory is a well-known edible plant and a perennial. The roots are ground for "chicory coffee" which is a specialty of Cajun cooking in Louisiana. The leaves have been used since Roman times for medicines, but the electric blue flowers are what make chicory famous. Along a roadside in bright sun, this is one of the biggest shows in the flower kingdom. Everyone loves the brilliant blue, even though the flowers close up when there is shade or rain.
