    Chamaemelum nobile

    Roman Chamomile is an aromatic herb, as well as a perennial ground cover that will take light foot traffic. Try planting it along a pathway and enjoy the sweet apple-scented aroma with every step you take.

    Roman Chamomile is a low-growing, spreading herb that has bright daisy-like flowers and delicate foliage. It is easy to grow and enjoys full sun and sandy soil. It makes an excellent ground cover, and does well as a container plant.

    As a medicinal herb, Chamomile can be used for teas to aid digestion and act as a gentle sleep inducer. Its can also be very beneficial for treating minor burns such as sunburn, as its oils contain skin-regenerating flavonoids, and anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties that will help you renew and relax. Used as a bath oil, Chamomile may also help with post pregnancy healing.

    This perennial form produces less flowers than the annual varieties but comes back reliably each year. Plant in sun to part shade.

    Uses: Roman Chamomile is an excellent herb for calming anxiety and nausea as well as topical skin conditions like eczema. Recent studies show this variety of Chamomile contains anti fungal, antibacterial, antiviral and antispasmodic elements contained in the essential oils of the Roman Chamomile flower. Used in many teas, lotions, cremes and medicines, Chamomile is a terrific sleep aid and greatly helps with digestive problems.

    Tips: The Roman variety tends to be slightly more bitter than its sweeter German cousin, so when making teas with Roman Chamomile, you made need to add a bit of honey or Stevia for added sweetness. Both strains tend to be generally resistant to most garden pests.
