I wonder if it could be some kind of dianthus? http://busy-at-home.com/images/garden/dianthus.jpg I have one that is called 'clove pink' ...it has a wonderful clove smell.....the leaves are long and spikey looking like yours but close to the ground and grow almost in a mat and the flowers bud out on single stems. The flower looks similar to some I ran across on line.
I think the blue one is not chicory but bachelor's button. https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=bachelor%27s%20button%20flower

yeah these are pretty common in gardens, and "escape cultivation". the dianthus is perennial ? i think? most dianthus are perennials.
the pinks are edible flowers, they are actually pretty good. i think cornflower is edible too.
