Chamaemelum nobile

Asteraceae (Compositae)
Ground covers, Herbs, Perennials

Native to West Europe, Azores, North Africa. Soft-textured, spreading, 3- to 12-in. high mat of bright light green, finely cut, aromatic leaves. Blooms in summer (sometimes continuing into fall in cool climates); blooms winter to spring in hot desert regions. Blossoms of the most commonly grown form look like small yellow buttons, while those of other types resemble little daisies. Makes good lawn substitute if planted 1 ft. apart, mowed or sheared occasionally. Also useful between stepping-stones or as a low edging along path.
