Chamaemelum nobile-Creeping Chamomile

Propagating Creeping Chamomile can be accomplished either in the spring or fall by removing the stolons from the parent plant that have a good root system or by digging up the parent plant and dividing the crown. If you don’t have stolons coming out from the parent plant it could indicate that the soil is not amended to produce the growth, so add some compost or manure around the base of the plant. The blooms are fragrant, smell like apple blossoms, and bloom from May until June , flowers are daisy like with yellow centers ringed white. Creeping Chamomile reaches a height of 4"-6", is deer resistant, is evergreen in milder zones, read that it is hardy down to -40 degrees, and needs a well draining soil in full sun to partial shade.
