Roman Chamomile Plants

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.

Roman Chamomile Tea

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.

Not critter-proof/resistant June 7, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Friendsville, TN United States  
Of all the herbs I've ordered from the Exchange,the Roman Chamomile is the only one I've had trouble with.  The healthy-looking leaves suddenly died back the day after I unpacked them.  I planted them anyway, and some of them started to come back from the roots.  A few days later, something ate the newly-emerging leaves completely back to the ground.

Gorgeous!! May 16, 2014
Reviewer: Katharine from Altamonte Springs, FL United States  
I bought a few of these to use as a grass replacement for my front yard. I love them so much that I'm doing my entire yard in them now. They arrived huge and healthy and have begun to spread already in just a couple weeks. The second order I got of them are even larger than the first! Roman Chamomile has a calming effect and is a wonderful plant to have around. Thank you!!
