The Blue Chicory Wildflowers Are Still Blooming On Cape Cod.

You can still see the beautiful deep blue Chicory wildflowers blooming along the roads,  trails and out in the meadows. I took this photograph at Fort Hill.

A couple of interesting facts: The stemless flowers grow right on the stalk and each flower lasts only one day. I love the delicate stamen and pistils in the center.

Chicory blooms through October so you still have time to see it.

  1. Wikipedia cites many interesting facts about chicory, some scientific, some culinary, and some “magical”:

    “The chicory flower is often seen as inspiration for the Romantic concept of the Blue Flower (e.g. in German language Blauwarte ≈ blue lookout by the wayside). It could open locked doors, according to European folklore.[62]”
