Description

Wild Chicory Plug Plants Cichorium intybus 

Common names include blue daisy, blue dandelion, blue weed and coffee weed.

A beautiful native perennial with purple-blue star-like flowers on slender woody stalks, chicory prefers a sunny site on sandy soil or dry grassland.  An ideal plant for informal gardens, wildlife gardens and meadows, wild chicory flowers from July through to October and will grow to around 1 metre in height.  It is an excellent nectar source for bees such as honeybees and long and short-tongued bumblebees, beetles and flies. 

Our strong, healthy plants are grown in 40cc cell trays and are ready to be planted in their final position.

Sourced from native seed and grown for us in the UK, our plug plants are an ideal way to boost species in a wildflower meadow or to easily establish plants in your garden or in areas where seed germination can be erratic.

We recommend planting 5 plugs per metre square in groups of at least 3 per species for a naturalistic look.
