"Wake Up and Smell the Chicory!"
Common chicory, is a somewhat woody, perennial herbaceous plant usually with bright blue flowers. Various varieties are cultivated for salad leaves, chicons (blanched buds), but, the roots, which are baked, ground, and used as a coffee substitute and additive is the most common usage. It is also grown as a forage crop for livestock. It lives as a wild plant on roadsides in its native Europe and in North America and Australia, where it has become naturalized. Common names for varieties of chicory include endive, radicchio, Belgian endive, French endive, red endive, sugarloaf or witloof.

Will not block your Sim's path.
Does not need watering or weeding.
The seasonal chicory correctly changes with the seasons. The changing-of-leaves only works if the Seasons EP is installed. It can also be used without Seasons, but only the summer state will appear.
Mesh and textures by me.
My chicory was previously available at Affinity Sims, but it was a non-seasonal version. This seasonal version has the same GUID so it will replace the non-seasonal version. However, they cannot co-exist in the game. You can only have one or the other. If you decide you want the seasonal version and you've used my non-seasonal version on any lots, they will be replaced on the lot by my seasonal version.
Tested in a vanilla game with all expansions plus M&G.
