Description
This one is a well-known edible plant, the roots being ground for “chicory coffee”, a specialty of Cajun cooking in Louisiana. Leaves have been used since Roman times for medicines. But the electric blue flowers are what makes 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 in the afternoon and on cloudy days. The subject of several romantic legends, chicory is one of our most historic wildflowers.

      These plants grow along our highways & roads, and look beautiful all bloomed out. I have added them to my butterfly garden for the added color. I look forward to the spring when they are bloomed out!

          Comments about American Meadows Chicory Seeds:

          Planted chicory in the spring along with black eyed susans and coreopsis. All but the chicory bloomed. The yellow flowers were beautiful but a little blue mixed in would have been better. Next time I will try the blue bachelor buttons. AM seeds seem to be top quality so I don't know what happened to the chicory.

              Comments about American Meadows Chicory Seeds:

              While Chickory did not do as well as some of the other wildflowers I've planted, still it did produce pockets of sky-blue throughout the meadow I planted it in. I think next time I plant it I'll prepare the soil a little better, this plant seems to need just a litle more "care" than others I've "thrown" in my meadow. Still, I do plan on trying it again.

                Comments about American Meadows Chicory Seeds:

                Just planted these this spring. Was afraid the seeds wouldn't sprout (because poppy seeds I bought the year before from somewhere else never sprouted). These seeds that I got from American Meadows have sprouted magnificently. I'm delighted. Also delighted with the amount of seeds I got for the price--a great bargain.
