With its low and creeping habit and fragrant, green foliage, the Roman Chamomile Plant has many uses. Botanically named Chamaemelum nobile, this perennial chamomile can be grown in a pot or even used for a lawn. Developing small, daisy-like blooms from midsummer onwards, its flowers have many herbal properties and most notably are used for making tea. Roman Chamomile is a perfect addition to any herb garden or patio.
Roman Chamomile Plant Care
Roman Chamomile Plant will flower best when grown in full sun, but can tolerate some partial shade. It can tolerate poor soil, but to thrive it prefers to be planted in fertile and well-drained soil. To harvest its flowers, the blooms can simply be pinched off when fully open and used fresh or dried. If leggy growth occurs during the summer, the stems can be cut back to encourage fresh new growth.
Growing Roman Chamomile Plant
When fully grown, this Roman Chamomile Plant remains low at around 3-6 inches high with a spread of up to 12-15 inches across. If grown in the right conditions, this chamomile can produce flowers within a matter of a few weeks. Due to its sun-loving nature and spreading habit, Roman Chamomile is usually grown outdoors, but can also be grown on a south-facing, sunny windowsill.
This Roman Chamomile Plant is perfectly suited to growing in a container that is 10 to 12 inches wide. As it dislikes overly wet soil, drainage holes must be present to allow excess moisture to drain away.
Watering Roman Chamomile Plant
Once established, this chamomile is relatively drought tolerant. However, it will need regular watering after planting and for the first growing season to help it get its roots down.
Feeding Roman Chamomile Plant
Generally, Roman Chamomile does not require any additional fertilizer. If this herb is overfed, it may produce excessive growth at the expense of the flowers.
