Cichorium intybus

This is the wild form of the plant and is not used for its leaves.  Primarily grown now as an ornamental, the roots of this plant are dried and roasted to be used as a coffee amendment or substitute.

A native of the British Isles, chicory has been naturalized all over the world.  It flowers at two to three feet tall.

Chicory, with sugar beet and rye was used as an ingredient of the East German Mischkaffee (mixed coffee), introduced during the 'coffee crisis' of 1976 to 1979. Some beer brewers use roasted chicory to add rich flavor to their stouts.  USDA Zones 3-9.  Perennial.

Each packet contains 0.25 gram, which is approximately 200 of seeds.

(By ordering this seed, you are agreeing that it is allowed in your area or that you will not be cultivating it. Please check with your state and local laws to verify that you can grow this in your area.  It may be classified as a "noxious weed" in your state and cultivation prohibited.)

Pretty flowers
I started the seeds inside and the germination was good. I then planted this in my herb garden. This plant produces very pretty flowers and can grow quite tall. I had to move some other things and trim it a couple times to keep it in the space I allowed for it. I will transplant it this year to give it more room. It really attracts the bees and good bugs which is one of the reasons I grew it. The purple flowers are just so pretty in my herb garden when a lot of these don't produce a flower. Will grow more for my other gardens.
