Description

Found on the side of a road right next to a sidewalk. The chicory plant dominates the plant life in the area. It is a periwinkle color. It has 12 petals per flower. The edges of the petal are serrated on the edges. The stamens are blue on the bottom and white on top. The anthers of the plant are curled. The stem of the plant is green and is very thick and tough. The flowers grow parallel from each other on each side of the stem. The base of the stem is very spiny and brown. In the same 10 meter by 10 meter area there are about 25 chicory plants. There are other grasses growing intertwined with the chicory. The chicory has no canopy cover. Many honey bees were spotted on the flower. The flower was about an inch in diameter. The chicory plant stood about 4 feet tall. The leaves of the chicory are green and are at the base of the stem (near the ground). Many of the chicory flowers are wilted and some of the stems are brown indicating that the flowers may be dying. As I walked further, I spotted about 100 chicory plants in a 20 area (near the freeway).
