Matriarcia recutita. Fern-like foliage on thin, light green stems, ¾" apple-scented, white, daisy-like flowers with yellow centers. Blooms from late spring to summer. What could be more soothing than curling up at bedtime with a good book and a cup of chamomile tea made from flowers fresh from your garden? The flowers can also be dried for floral arrangements, pressed for crafts, or woven into charming wreaths, and their edible petals can be tossed into salads. In the garden, chamomile attracts beneficial insects and pollinators.
