German Chamomile is a must-have herb if you enjoy drinking hot or cold teas. The flowers are a staple ingredient in herbal tea concoctions, where they have a soothing, calming effect and a faintly fruity, sweet flavor. They are also used in shampoos and hair rinses to lighten blond hair.
Up to 24 inches tall and 15 inches wide, German Chamomile has many thin branches of finely divided green leaves. Small ?-inch white and yellow daisylike flowers appear from early through midsummer.
Sow seeds in fall or spring in well-drained, neutral to slightly acid soil, or begin indoors. Germination takes about 10 to 14 days.
For best flavor, harvest the flowers when first fully opened, and use fresh or freeze.
