Description

This ancient European herb remains a popular and useful plant in gardens today.  The single-flowered Roman Chamomile has been considered the most potent medicinal form since the 13th century.  It was grown in American gardens by the 1600's and Thomas Jefferson listed Chamomile as a kitchen garden herb in 1794.  Low-growing plants produce single, white, daisy-like flowers and fragrant, lacy foliage. Jefferson-documented: This plant was documented by Thomas Jefferson in his Garden Book, Notes on the State of Virginia, or other writings.

Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost at 70 degrees F, transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and transplant outdoors to well-drained soil at or before the last frost.  Approximately 200 seeds per packet.
