Pretty Blue Chicory Wildflower On Cape Cod


The vibrant blue Chicory wildflowers can be seen everywhere all over Cape Cod fields and roadsides. Chicory grows on a stiff stalk with stemless flower heads whose petals are fringed at the ends. Each flower lasts only about a day and close at midday.

Chicory wildflowers are about 1 to 1/1/2″ and the plants grow to 2-4 feet from June through October. Love their pistil and stamens… they look like little bright blue rods.

Very abundant on Cape Cod and very pretty.

  1. Chicory just bloomed in Connecticut this week. I wonder if this plant is the source of chicory “coffee.”
