Chicory

   
Chicory
Cichorium intybus
   

Bright blue chicory is pretty to look at, beautiful in bouquets, and it is also one of the most useful of common wild plants. Chicory is often added to coffee because it is cheap and plentiful, and it has a delicious flavor when roasted. In the photo here, the foliage surrounding the plant is not the foliage of the chicory, but simply that of the surrounding plants. Chicory usually has long spindly stems, and leaves which hug the ground, so the most recognizable portion of it is always its bright blue blossoms.
