Anthemis nobilis

  • History

    The name "Chamomile" is derived from the Greek words "Khamai" (on the ground) and "Melon" (apple) and no doubt refers to the apple-like smell of its flowers. This gave the Latin word "Chamaemeleon", which went on to become "Chamomile" in English. Cultivation of Chamaemelum nobile (or Anthemis nobilis) developed in Europe, which led to it being called "Roman" chamomile by the German physician Joachim Camerarius, who discovered it in Rome in the 16th century.
