Depending on the variety, chamomile is either a perennial or annual, growing best in full sunshine to partial shade and well-drained soil.

Chamomile has been cultivated for centuries across different continents for its soothing properties. These flowers are harvested for teas mostly; however, they also provide essential oils and herbal cures. They’re known for aiding relaxation. Chamomile plants are adaptable in USDA zones 4 to 9, growing well in temperate climates. Tolerant to drought, chamomile seeds are a resilient choice for many garden settings.


Sow the seeds directly into the garden space. They can also be started in seed trays indoors. Chamomile seeds need light to germinate properly, so press them gently into the soil without covering them. Maintain soil moisture until germination, which typically starts within a week or two. When seedlings are sturdy enough, transplant them outside. Find a sunny or partially shaded area, spacing them according to the directions on the packet.


Chamomile plants are relatively low maintenance, once established. As mentioned, well-drained soil provides the best foundation for their successful growth. They need occasional watering once the plants mature. Deadheading dry flowers can encourage continuous blooming. Besides being beneficial for humans, chamomile serves as a companion plant. Both German and Roman Chamomile improve the health of the surrounding plants while attracting beneficial insects.
