An evergreen, fragrant carpet

Days to Maturity: 90

If you have ever dreamed about growing a chamomile lawn, this is the variety to try. Just like German chamomile, Roman (or English [syn. Anthemis nobilis]) chamomile flowers are used in herbal teas. More often, though, Roman chamomile is used as an unusual, aromatic ground cover.

This evergreen perennial forms a thick, 6-inch mat of sweetly scented, finely cut, bright green leaves. The foliage reaches only a few inches high, topped with single stalks bearing tiny white and yellow daisylike flowers from midsummer into fall. Exquisite!

The aroma of chamomile is applelike, and the foliage is finely cut and ferny. The blooms begin with the hot weather of summer and often continue into fall. Even out of bloom, however, chamomile is attractive, with evergreen leaves and a dense habit.

Start seeds indoors for best results. Germination takes about 10 to 14 days. Transplant the seedlings 4 inches apart in light well-drained soil in sun to create a lawn effect. Plants may deteriorate in very cold or wet winters but will most likely recover.
