Anthemis Kelwayii Ground Cover
Anthemis tinctoria Kelwayi (Dyers Chamomile, Golden Marguerite, Ox Eye Chamomile)
Aromatic mounds of finely divided mid-green foliage, throughout the summer months a profusion of bright yellow daisy like flowers that are popular with bees and butterflies. A tough, easy and fast covering plant for sunny spot in well drained soil, thrives in poor soil where growth will be more compact. Great for long lasting summer colour closer to the front of a border. In milder Winters Anthemis kelwayi will be semi-evergreen, retaining some foliage.
As a rough guide planting Anthemis kelwayi as ground cover – 4 plants per square metre is adequate with a little patience, 6 will give better coverage and 9-12 will make a weed supressing carpet very quickly.
