Roman Chamomile Seed As A Lawn Grass Alternative

Roman Chamomile Grass AlternativeRoman Chamomile Seed (Anthemis nobilis) can be planted to produce a soft, fragrant and beautiful perennial lawn such as the famed British Chamomile lawns of which you may have heard. A Roman Chamomile ground cover is unique, aromatic, attractive and is well-suited for covering large areas  -- making it an excellent choice as a substitute for traditional lawn grass. Roman Chamomile forms a 6" - 12" mat of sweetly scented, fern-like, bright green foliage that blooms with tiny, white and gold daisy-like blooms in the late spring.

Roman Chamomile is great for erosion control as it holds the soil in place even on slopes. Also weeds don't stand a chance as this herbal carpet will spread to fill in gaps in your lawn blocking out most weeds. It can be mowed (after flowering -- set the mower on the highest setting), and it tolerates light foot traffic -- you may want to put stepping stone pathways in high traffic areas. Another benefit is that Roman Chamomile flowers are used in herbal teas and have medicinal properties along with various other home uses .

Growing Roman Chamomile

Roman Chamomile When not bloomingRoman Chamomile Seed (Anthemis Nobilis or Chamaemelum nobile) can be planted as a fragrant and lovely lawn grass alternative and it is said that the Egyptians and the Roman's walked upon this fragrant herb, bathed in it and used it medicinally. Roman Chamomile is aggressive, can overtake an existing lawn, and is said to be deer resistant. This flowering herb will attract bees, butterflies and other pollinators.

Grow in an open site in well-drained, preferably light, sandy soil in full sun. To produce a lawn, plant 5 to 6 inches apart, and water freely until established. Chamomile plants should be mown -- after blooming -- periodically to encourage dense growth. See the picture here to the right showing Roman Chamomile with no blooms -- notice the dense mat formed by the foliage which will overtake and eliminate weeds.
