    Characteristics: Roman Chamomile is a small herb that delivers a big aromatic punch. A German botanist, visiting Rome in the mid-sixteenth century, gave this aromatic herb the name Roman Chamomile. It is also sometimes referred to as English Chamomile, for its popularity as a filler for spaces between pavers or as a path cover.
    Light: Roman Chamomile enjoys full sun to partial shade.
    Water: Water Roman Chamomile when it is dry to the touch, but avoid over-watering.
    Soil: Roman Chamomile will thrive in good quality soil.
    Use: Roman Chamomile is a wonderful aromatic herb with many uses. A perennial ground cover that will take light foot traffic, this low-growing spreading herb makes an effective herbal tea used to calm the nerves. Its bright, daisy-like flowers make wonderful additions to bouquets and potpourris, or can be kept on the plant to repel insects away from your garden. With so many uses, what's not to love?







  • This herb was used and revered by the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. The Egyptians compared the daisy flowers to the sun and dedicated it to their sun god, Ra. The Greeks gave it the name that eventually led to the word Chamomile. They called it Kamaimelon. "Kamai" means on the ground and "melon" means apple, so you get "ground apple." The Romans, who probably got it by way of Britain, bathed in it, walked on it and used it medicinally.
