@maureen137 , thank you. This one is in morning shade. It actually looks better out of the sun, a deeper blue.

We have it growing in ditches everywhere. I have tried to transfer it to my gardens several times, without any luck.

@KariSamuel I've grown them from seed in pots and then transferred to garden. Never had a problem doing it?

Do you collect seeds, or purchase them?

Ok. That might be my issue! Native plants and/or seed heads aren't working! 💙 Will look for seeds next year!

Has anyone tried taking root cuttings from their chickory plants? Took a few last week and don't seem to be wilting? #planthelp
