Species Description

Chamomile is a native perennial which grows 5-25 cm in height and produces carpets of flowers during June and July. Its aromatic leaves are generally avoided by grazing animals, which enables the species to flourish in open pastures with nutrient poor soils. It has suffered significant declines in modern times, for example in Gower is currently restricted to just two populations on common land.
