Buy Anthemis tinctoria 'E.C. Buxton' dyer's chamomile: Cheerful, lemon-yellow daisy-like flowers

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Pretty, lemon-yellow daisy-like flowers appear on this dyer's chamomile throughout the summer, above the finely cut, aromatic, mid-green leaves. This cheerful, long-flowering anthemis will lift a sunny, well-drained border, where it becomes tolerant of drought once established. Do keep in mind however that although it is perennial, it can often be relatively short-lived.

  • Garden care: Support with brushwood or link stakes in late spring before the flowers appear. After flowering cut back the faded stems to the ground to encourage new growth from the base of the plant.

Lovely but Leggy.... supports needed.


These are lovely plants. However - they are very leggy! I had to buy some metal supports for them as they were flopping all over the path. They have grown much taller than the 70cm advertised too (I realise this is always approximate - the abundant rain this year has made everything shoot up!) and are more like 90cm.... which means that they are too tall for the position I planted them in. A 'Chelsea Chop' may well work wonders as suggested by another reviewer. However, for me, I will be replacing them as they are too 'leggy' for my taste. They would work better towards the back of a border and I would recommend using supports as they grow to stop them flopping over. As a huge positive - they grew quickly and flowered beautifully which I wasn't expecting for the first years growth. They were also very attractive to insects. Another very endearing attribute is the way they 'fold up' at night like little lampshades!




Lovely plants that lasted for months


Lovely plant that went on for months and months.




Long-flowering, beautiful lemony flowers


Although rather short-lived (but easily replenished with spring heel cuttings), this anthemis is a real beauty, especially when mixed with plants with purple blooms (lavender, verbena, etc.). Mine grow much taller than the description indicates, so do require some staking to stop them flopping. But I'll be trying the Chelsea chop this year, to extend flowering and keep the plants a little more compact.

The Chelsea Chop

In the third week of this month you can 'Chelsea chop' your summer-flowering perennials to delay their flowering times. Sedums can be cut back by two thirds to provide lusher foliage, but at the expense of flower.
