Roman chamomile

Chamaemelum nobile

Makes a fine, ferny and fragrant low groundcover tolerant of dry conditions.

Tea made from flowers aids digestion and is a gentle sleep inducer. Teas can also be used to make shampoo and hair rinse. Roman chamomile is fun to grow where the aroma can be enjoyed. It’s a great companion plant to cucumbers and onions if you plant it among your vegetables as a living mulch. Harvest chamomile by drying on a screen covered lightly with cheesecloth.
