The wild chicory is a beautiful perennial that is also quite hardy and is ideal for use in cottage gardens.

Bees, butterflies, and hoverflies are particularly drawn to the bright blue blooms that bloom on the slender, woody stalks produced by this plant.

Full light and sandy soil or dry grasslands are ideal growing conditions for this plant. As the morning progresses into the afternoon, the lovely blue blooms unfold their petals, but by afternoon they have closed again.
