German Chamomile

250 mg seed packet

German Chamomile makes an absolutely stunning border that has valuable medicinal uses as well.  For years German chamomile has been used in teas for a soothing and calmning effect.  In fact a tea made of it is said to be an excellent anti-fugal agent on other plants!

German Chamomile can grow up to  22 inches tall and 12 inches wide, German chamomile has many thin branches of finely divided green leaves. Tiny 3/4 inch white and sunshine yellow daisy-like flowers appear from early summer to fall.

German Chamomile will grow in many soils, but is most happy in light sandy soils.  Treat just like you would plant most wildflowers and cover very lightly with fine soil. 

German chamomile is used medicinally against sore stomach, irritable bowel syndrome, and as a gentle sleep aid. It is also used as a mild laxative. It can be taken as a herbal tea, two teaspoons of dried flower per cup of tea. For a sore stomach, some recommend taking a cup every morning without food for two to three months.  It is also used as a mouthwash against oral mucositis. It has acaricidal properties against certain mites, such as Psoroptes cuniculi. Source Wikipedia
