Chamaemelum nobile 'Flora Plena',
This Roman Chamomile cultivar is an old variety grown commercially in England for tea and medicinal use. Double-flowered selection of Roman Chamomile, not often seen in modern gardens.
Should be harvested as they open for the freshest brews, creams, and extracts.
Plants form a low evergreen mat of ferny leaves, bearing small, fluffy white flowers in early to mid summer. Flowers can be dried and used for tea. Foliage is light green & pleasantly fragrant.
A delightful texture and form for rock, container and border gardens. Creeping, mat forming growth habit which makes it a good lawn replacement, ornamental ground cover or edging. Drought and deer tolerant.
Prolific and self seeding. Easy to grow in full sun or partial shade, normal, sandy, or dry soils. Water sparingly as it prefers hot dry sunny areas.
Plants reach heights of 10-15cm (4-6"), spreading 25-30cm (10-12").
Perennial (hardy in zones 5-8).
