dyer's chamomile

RHS award of garden merit Perfect for pollinators
2 litre pot £11.99

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Pretty, lemon-yellow daisy-like flowers appear on this dyer's chamomile throughout the summer, above the finely cut, aromatic, mid-green leaves. This cheerful, long-flowering anthemis will lift a sunny, well-drained border, where it becomes tolerant of drought once established. Do keep in mind however that although it is perennial, it can often be relatively short-lived.

  • Garden care: Support with brushwood or link stakes in late spring before the flowers appear. After flowering cut back the faded stems to the ground to encourage new growth from the base of the plant.
