Here is the cornflower blue of poets.

Grind the roots and make a decaf coffee substitute as they did in American Civil War days.

Throw some in a salad and call it French endive.

Chicory makes a great plant to feed pasture animals.

It is hinted that it would make a great medicinal plant, although this is not proven.

Chicory was imported from Europe into America. No wonder; it's so easy to grow and so versatile.
