German Chamomile Plants

Matricaria Chamomila

Similar to Roman Chamomile, Chamomile 'German' has been a useful medicinal herb for centuries.

Medicinally, Chamomile 'German' is a great cure for a variety of ailments ranging from nausea, headaches and anxiety, to easing colic in babies. Widely used in tea form, Chamomile 'German' is a gentle sedative and its flowers contain anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. In Ancient Egypt, Chamomile was used as a cure for malaria.

Common Chamomile

Easy and quick to grow, Chamomile can be a bit invasive to gardens if left unchecked. Proven to encourage the quality of plants grown near it as well as the condition of the garden bed and soil, Chamomile is also resistant to insects and an attractant for necessary pollinators. Though not as fragrant as Roman Chamomile, 'Common' has an apple scented, daisy-like flower and grows in a shrub-like spread. Makes a wonderfully aromatic, pest repelling ground cover!

German Chamomile is also used in many shampoos for its perfume and in hair dyes and rinses to enhance blond coloring.

Uses: German Chamomile is a low-growing ground cover herb that requires a lot of sun. It's a gentle medicinal herb used to cure indigestion and nausea. Chamomile can also be used to make herb beers, and can also be applied externally to help toothaches, earaches, and neuralgia.

Tips: The Egyptians praised Chamomile for its virtues. They believed it had the power to cure fever and sickness, and dedicated it to their gods.

5 of 5 Arrived Healthy July 7, 2017
Reviewer: Patrick Terry from Tazewell, TN United States  
I am particularly happy with the three plants; I suspect they will do well, they've been in the ground a couple of weeks and they are doing great.

My only issue is that I ordered German Chamomile (versus Roman) these plants arrived with identification tags reading "common Chamomile." I wrote an email asking for clarification but I have not received a response.

Either way, whichever variety I ended up with...they'll do nicely in the particular garden I've placed them in.
