A few years ago, I planted a little seedling of chamomile in the back of my house. Now, they are everywhere in the back yard. All I did was occasionally running the sprinkler.
There are two kinds of this plant. German chamomile that is an annual, Roman chamomile that is a perennial. The German chamomile is the one usually used in tea and herbal medicines. A tea made from fresh chamomile flower tastes much better than commercial one that you can buy in stores.
Unfortunately, mine is Roman chamomile, the perennial one, so I can’t make tea out of the plants. But the little daisy-like flowers are spectacular from June to July and the bloom lasts for weeks.

The chamomile in the pic looks so pretty. I have small herb garden but unfortunately the chamomile seeds never sprout perhaps the climate in India.

Herbalists say that chamomile is hard to start from seeds. Not India’s climate is to blame. 🙂 Grow it from seedlings–young chamomile. That was what I did.
