Description: Common chicory, Cichorium intybus, is a somewhat woody, perennial herbaceous plant of the dandelion family Asteraceae, usually with bright blue flowers,
rarely white or pink. It lives as a wild plant on roadsides in its native Europe, and is now common in North America, China, and Australia, where it has become widely
naturalized. "Chicory" is also the common name in the United States for curly endive (Cichorium endivia); these two closely related species are often confused.
