Chamomile is a low-growing perennial, 3 to 6 inches tall, with feathery foliage. It produces small, daisylike flowers about 10 inches above the foliage in early summer. Both foliage and flowers have a delicate applelike scent. Plant this herb in a well-drained soil in full sun. Chamomile can be grown from seed, but allow 8 to 10 weeks for it to germinate. Otherwise, divide the established plants in early spring or fall. The flower heads are cut before the petals fall and dried for later use. Keep the
plants trimmed back to promote bushy and full growth.
