Double-flowered Chamomile
Chamaemelum nobile ‘Flore Pleno’

Print Plant

  

A double-flowered selection of 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 fluffy white flowers in early summer. Flowers can be dried and used for tea. Foliage is pleasantly fragrant. This is a very old selection, not often seen in modern gardens. An excellent choice for a lawn substitute, plants should be clipped or mowed (to 2 inches) after blooming to keep them compact. Easily divided in spring or early fall by digging up and ripping apart into smaller pieces.
