Chamomile German is an upright plant that is container friendly. It grows 18-24 inches tall. It is an easy-to-harvest annual, with small daisy-like white flowers that have an apple scent. The fresh blooms can be used in salads. The dried blooms can be brewed into a tea and are said to be a gentle sleep aid. Use a handful in the tub for a soothing herbal bath.
Pick the flowers in the early morning when the petals start to turn back on the center disc. Rinse well under cool water, gently pat dry and place on a screen to dry completely. Store in airtight containers in a dark place. This may take several weeks, so be patient.
