COUNTRY GARDEN SEED SHOP
Corn Chamomile is one of our most beautiful aromatic wildflowers. This lovely annual plant produces sturdy stems with feathery foliage topped by masses of daisy-like white flowers, each with a central yellow disk. Blooms are full of nectar and easy for Bees and Butterflies to land on. In fact they are great for lots of pollinating insects and listed by the RHS as Perfect for Pollinators.
Lovely for cottage gardens and for wilder parts of manicured gardens such as an orchard, Corn Chamomile flowers from June until July/August. They are also suited to naturalistic planting schemes and wild flower meadows where they grow beautifully with Grasses such as Briza, Ox-eye Daisies, Geranium and other British wildflowers. Their strong stems provide support for wildflowers such as Cornflowers and Poppies.
Grow Anthemis arvensis in full sun with well drained soil for best results.
