History Blooms at Monticello - Roman Chamomile

Roman Chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile)

This ancient European herb remains a popular and useful plant in gardens today. The single-flowered Roman Chamomile has been considered the most potent medicinal form since the 13th century. 

It was grown in American gardens by the 1600s and Jefferson listed Chamomile as a kitchen garden herb in 1794. Low-growing plants produce single, white, daisy-like flowers and fragrant, lacy foliage.
