Also known under the synonym Anthemis nobilis, common names include Roman chamomile, English chamomile, ordinary chamomile, garden chamomile, ground apple, low chamomile, mother’s daisy or whig plant and camomile. Roman chamomile is known as a medicinal plant from the middle ages. The European cultivation of the plant started in England in the 16th century. The plant was listed first in the pharmacopoeia of Wurttemberg as a carminative, painkiller, diuretic and digestive aid. If using as a lawn, new chamomile lawns should not be walked on for at least 12 weeks, and foot traffic should be kept to an absolute minimum for the first year. You will need to remove dead flowers or patchers will appear.
Flowering from mid to late summer, lawn chamomile enjoys being in a sunny position in garden lawns in well drained soils.
