Corn Chamomile (anthemis arvensis)

Corn Chamomile is an annual wildflower with frondy leaves and many daisy-like flowers from May to August.  It grows to a height of around12 – 18 ins (30 – 45 cm) and is found in meadows, wasteland and arable land. It is also known as Scentless Chamomile (although the leaves give off an apple-like scent when crushed) and Mayweed.

RHS Plants for Pollinators

Corn Chamomile is nectar-rich and so attracts many butterflies and bees.

Medicinal properties include treatment for diarrhoea and inflammation – although always consult a experienced herbalist before using!
