40. Chicory (Cichorium intybus L.)

40. Chicory

This plant, sometimes called Succory, grows on the dry road-sides, in waste ground and by the edges of fields, particularly in chalky soil. Its stiffly upright flowering stems are from one to three feet high, these growing from a rosette of leaves upon the ground. It flowers from July to October. On the Continent the roots of this flower are roasted and ground, this serving as a substitute for coffee.
