Chicory or Cichorium intybus is the bright blue relative of the dandelion. Usually found on the roadsides, this amazing plant is also grown as forage for livestock. But what is good for our beloved pets, surely cannot harm us. So feel free to try a salad made of chicory leaves.
From the chicory's roots (dried and grinded) you will obtain a delicious coffee substitute.
Leaving aside the numerous uses of this flower, we can concentrate on its delicate beauty. There is no wonder this blue flower is the symbol of perseverance and magic since it fancies the roadsides or desolated places. 🙂
