Chicory Cichorium Intybus is very easy to grow, in fact once established it will grow without any care at all. The plant will only make leaf growth the first year, and then will flower the second year and successive season. Chicory flowers have blue blossoms consisting of ray flowers that are formed at end of stems and stem leaf axils, and the flowers are the most obvious in the morning and close later in the day. The flowers have numerous parts and are wide up to 1.5 inches. Blooms first appear in late spring and continue into mid fall.

Chicory Cichorium Intybus is cultivated since ancient times for its leaves, is used for salads. It is usually blanched by covering with litter to make it less bitter; whole or shredded leaves are served with oil and vinegar as salads; blanched hearts serve as a vegetable.
