Chamomile (Roman and German)
Chamaemelum nobile & Matricaria recutita,
Also known as scented mayweed
This annual stems up to 45cm in height. In the summer months small, scented daisy-like flowers are visible. Chamomile, like most herbs, enjoys full sun and dry, well-drained soil. It self-sows quite freely. Chamomile tea is used as a digestive and a mild sedative. The flowers are used to help soothe inflammation.
Two varieties of chamomile exist. Roman Chamomile, Chamaemelum nobile, is called true chamomile and it a low-growing perennial. German chamomile, Matricaria recutita, is a short lived annual that is commonly used for tea.
