Chamomile

Chamomile is a hardy annual with feathery leaves and small, white, daisy-like, sweet aromatic flowers. Chamomile is commonly known for its use as a herbal tea, said to reduce stress, soothe the stomach and aid sleep. Both the leaves and flowers are edible. A pretty, easy-to-grow herb to add to any garden. German chamomile is commonly considered to be the best chamomile for making tea as it is the sweetest tasting of the different varieties.  In addition to floral teas, chamomile makes a lovely addition to cakes, biscuits, breads and puddings.
