(Chicory - 01) Chicory are members of the Composite or Aster family, and can grow up to five feet tall. Only a few flowers are open on a plant at one time, which gives a somewhat sparse appearance, as depicted in this photo. The flowers last only one day, and are replaced by new flowers the next day. The root of the chicory can be roasted, ground, and used as a coffee substitute.
