Chamomile, Bodegold (Organic)
Bodegold is an improved German variety of chamomile with higher essential oil content, higher yields, larger flowers, and more uniform habit. The truly special trait of this variety is its delicious sweet aroma that is significantly sweeter than other chamomile varieties. White petaled flowers have fragrant yellow centers. Chamomile is commonly used as a calming herbal tea and is said to stimulate the immune system. Flowers are ready to pick and dry anytime, even after the petals have fallen off. Very attractive to pollinators. This is one of our favorite tea herbs. It should be in every garden. The compact plants grow 1-2′ and seeds are best direct sown, scattered on the soil surface. Strangely, chamomile seems to grow better in poor quality soil.
