Chicory ๐ŸŽ• Sutter National Wildlife Refuge ๐ŸŽ• Northern California Wildflowers

wildflower wednesday

It's always extra exciting to see blue flowers out in the wild because there just aren't as many of them as there are other colors. I like that this photo shows the profile of the blooms as they hang on to the stem for dear life...

We spotted this vibrant chicory on the roadside in front of the Sutter National Wildlife Refuge near Yuba City, in Northern California.

Common chicory (Cichorium intybus) is also known as blue daisy, blue dandelion, blue sailors, blue weed, bunk, coffeeweed, cornflower, hendibeh, horseweed, ragged sailors, succory, wild bachelor's buttons, and wild endive.
