Chicory is a summer perennial that develops from a basal rosette. Chicory looks similar to dandelion in the rosette form, but the lobes of the leaves are not opposite like those of dandelion. The lobes of dandelion also point toward the base. The flowers of chicory range from bright blue to purple in color. The flowers form on stems that range up to three feet in height, forming from June to October. Chicory reproduces by seed and is found throughout the United States except Florida.

For optimum control, make your post-emergence herbicide application to chicory that is actively growing and in the rosette to flower stage of growth.
