Description

Roman Chamomile

Small, hardy, sour apple scented, feathery foliage and small, free-blooming daisies bloom July to September. This is a traditional ground cover in English gardens and pathways where it is cut like grass. Growing it between bricks or along paths allows it to release its scent when brushed. Also called English Chamomile. 

History

Revered since ancient times by the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans for medicines, teas, cosmetics. They also bathed in it and walked on it. It is native to Europe, north Africa, and some parts of Asia.

Uses

Studies show it has antibacterial, anti fungal, and antiviral properties.  It also has antispasmodic properties, meaning it helps relax muscle contractions, particularly in the smooth muscles that make up the intestines. The flowers are used for calming herbal teas, to treat digestive disorders, to relieve muscle spasms, and to treat a range of skin conditions. 

Growing Tip

Roman Chamomile is a Perennial. German Chamomile is an Annual.
