Creeping Chamomile
Chamaemelum nobile

Print Plant


Also called Roman Chamomile, this is delightful when grown as an ornamental edging or groundcover for hot, dry sunny sites. Plants form a low, evergreen mat of ferny leaves, bearing small white daisy flowers in early summer. Flowers can be dried and used for tea. Foliage is pleasantly fragrant. An excellent choice for a lawn substitute, plants should be mowed or clipped back hard (to 2 inches) after blooming to maintain a compact habit. Easily divided in spring or early fall by digging up and ripping apart into smaller pieces. Evergreen in mild winter regions.
