Roman
(Chamaemelum nobile)
Product ID: 881

Roman chamomile comes from northwestern Europe and Northern Ireland, where it creeps close to the ground and can reach up to one foot in height. Gray-green leaves grow from the stems, and the flowers have yellow centers surrounded by white petals, like miniature daisies. Its leaves are thicker than German chamomile, and it grows closer to the ground. The flowers smell like apples.

Aromatic, perennial ground cover will tolerate light foot traffic.

Low-growing, spreading, with creeping rhizomes. Has similar uses for teas and medicine as annual chamomile varieties, but produces fewer blossoms.

Edible flowers: flower heads fresh or dried in teas; sprinkle over salads.
