Chamomile, Treneague (Chamaemelum nobile ‘Treneague’)

Chamomile, Treneague – Chamaemelum nobile ‘Treneague’

Chamomile, Treneague – Chamaemelum nobile ‘Treneague’ is a non-flowering clone of lawn chamomile. A hardy perennial with highly aromatic feathery leaves.

It has a dense leaved and creeping habit that makes it ideal for a chamomile lawn. As it is non-flowering, there is no need to cut it.

The name ‘Chamaemelum’ in fact actually derives from the Greek word ‘Khamaimelon’ which means ‘Earth Apple’.  A perfect name for the delicious apple scented foliage.

The best time to plant a lawn is in late Spring when the chamomile is growing at a fast rate. The rapid, prostrate growth will help to suppress any weed seedlings below. Keep well watered during warm, dry weather. The lawn will spread by sending out fresh runners. Eventually, you may find that the centre of the original plant dies off, leaving a hole in the sward. Simply remove the affected area, add some garden compost in the gap and re-plant with a fresh, rooted runner from a thick part of the lawn.

We often have plug plants available to buy in Spring that are suitable for planting a lawn. Ring or email us to find out more.
