Practical Weed Science for the Field Scout: Corn and Soybean

Chicory (Cichorium intybus)

Perennial broadleaf

ChicoryChicory
 

ChicoryA perennial that resembles dandelion when in the rosette stage but produces an attractive blue or purple flower when mature. Chicory is primarily a weed of pastures and no-till cropping systems throughout the United States. Plants initially develop as a basal rosette of leaves that are 3 to 10 inches long by 1/2 to 3 inches wide. Stems are branched and produce blue or purple flowers during the latter part of the growing season. Leaves that occur on the flowering stalks are much smaller than the rosette leaves and also have leaf bases that surround or clasp the stem.
