Which variety should I plant?

We grow two varieties of low growing, fragrant, evergreen no-mow chamomile, ‘Treneague’ and ‘Dwarf’. To the untrained eye there is very little difference between the two varieties, but choosing the best variety for your garden is important.

  • Chamaemelum nobile ‘Treneague’ – a low-growing (2-3 inches), sweetly fragrant, evergreen creeping variety which needs neutral to slightly acidic soil that is fertile and well-draining, in a sunny position or lightly dappled shade. This variety does not flower.
  • Chamaemelum nobile dwarf’ – low growing (2-4 inches) with its earthier fragrance and slightly darker green leaves, this more vigorous evergreen creeping variety will grow in poorer, more alkaline soils and can tolerate shadier habitats, though it prefers a sunny position. In favourable conditions it may grow slightly too big and need an occasional trim. The Dwarf variety may produce a very sporadic flower spike in the Summer.
