ANTHEMIS nobilis Roman Chamomile is a perennial herb that is native to the Mediterranean region and is widely cultivated throughout Europe, North America, and parts of Asia. It is a member of the Asteraceae family, which includes daisies and sunflowers. The appealing white flower is used in fragrances, beauty products, and also in aromatherapy. In the months of June and July, the flower creates an uncommon effect on its spectators.
The plant grows up to 30 cm (12 inches) tall and has feathery, fern-like leaves that are green-grey in color. The flowers are daisy-like with white petals and yellow centers, and have a sweet, apple-like fragrance. They bloom in late spring and summer, and can be harvested for use in teas, essential oils, and other medicinal preparations.
Roman Chamomile prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. It is drought-tolerant and can be propagated by seed or by dividing the plant in the spring. It is a popular plant for attracting pollinators to the garden, and is also used in herbal medicine for its calming and anti-inflammatory properties.
