(Matricaria recutita) Plants are low growing (6 inches), creeping and mat-forming with dark green ferny leaves from which tiny daisy-like flowers less than an inch wide, arise on long, thin, light green stems up to 3 foot high.


German Chamomile is hardy in USDA zones 5 to 8. It grows best in full sun or light shade. It should be planted in light sandy soil with good drainage and should be placed about eight inches apart. The plant requires occasional watering.


Chamomile spreads over time via creeping stems that root as they move across the soil. German chamomile also freely self-seeds. If you provide chamomile with optimum growing conditions, it can grow aggressively.


German Chamomile repels cucumber beetles and is recommended to be planted in vegetable gardens along with other companion plants. Not many insects bother the plant. Sometimes, clusters of aphids may be found, and they can be sprayed off with water or insecticide. 

Chamomile has been used as a medicine for thousands of years, dating back to the ancient Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks. Historically, chamomile is promoted for sleeplessness, anxiety, and gastrointestinal conditions such as upset stomach, gas, and diarrhea.
