Chamaemelum nobile

Aromatic Note: Middle note


There are three plants called Chamomile: Roman (Anthemis nobilis), German (Matricaria chamomilla), and Maroc Chamomile (Ormenis multicaulis).

These plants are easily grown in your garden and/or in pots. You can even grow Chamomile lawns.

The Roman species is also known as “the plant’s physician”: ailing garden plants are supposedly cured by planting Chamaemelum nobile beside them.

Cut flowers are said to last longer with the addition of Chamomile tea to their water.
