Buy Anthemis tinctoria 'E.C. Buxton' dyer's chamomile: Cheerful, lemon-yellow daisy-like flowers

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Pretty, lemon-yellow daisy-like flowers appear on this dyer's chamomile throughout the summer, above the finely cut, aromatic, mid-green leaves. This cheerful, long-flowering anthemis will lift a sunny, well-drained border, where it becomes tolerant of drought once established. Do keep in mind however that although it is perennial, it can often be relatively short-lived.

  • Garden care: Support with brushwood or link stakes in late spring before the flowers appear. After flowering cut back the faded stems to the ground to encourage new growth from the base of the plant.

Notes on Anthemis tinctoria 'E.C. Buxton'

"Lemon-yellow midsummer daisies on long stems, borne for many weeks, set off by dark-green curly foliage make this an essential thread in summer’s tapestry"

Long-flowering, beautiful lemony flowers

Although rather short-lived (but easily replenished with spring heel cuttings), this anthemis is a real beauty, especially when mixed with plants with purple blooms (lavender, verbena, etc.). Mine grow much taller than the description indicates, so do require some staking to stop them flopping. But I'll be trying the Chelsea chop this year, to extend flowering and keep the plants a little more compact.

The Chelsea Chop

In the third week of this month you can 'Chelsea chop' your summer-flowering perennials to delay their flowering times. Sedums can be cut back by two thirds to provide lusher foliage, but at the expense of flower.
