Chicory Invasion

2009 Chicory

As much as I truly love the beautiful blue blossoms, I am extremely disappointed by the way they have taken over my new front beds.

Here was the newly planned garden space last spring:

Here it was in full bloom with the annuals:

And unfortunately here it is now, completely invaded by the scraggly looking Chicory:

I had originally planted Oriental Poppy, Lupine, Tickseed, and Coneflower seeds as well, but the Chicory seems to have taken over. Eventually I’m going to have to dig out the majority of these plants and start over… ugh, great, right after I rebuild that stone wall that crashed last summer… oh the joys of landscaping!
