Chamaemelum nobile is native to dry, sandy regions in western Europe and is grown for its medicinal properties. Its long summer flowering, survival in tough growing conditions, use as a ground cover and finely divided, aromatic foliage means that is a simple, but useful plant to have in the garden.
- Chamaemelum nobile has numerous medicinal properties and is used as herbal remedy for digestive problems and insomnia.
- In the garden we use it as ground cover in a rock garden or as edging for a perennial border under lavenders, santolina or thyme.
- Planted in paving cracks it can become an effective and deliciously aromatic carpet.
Grow in the sun (even scorching) in neutral to alkaline, dry and poor, preferably sandy soil.
