Scented Mayweed (Matricaria recutita)



Scented mayweed is a daisy-like annual with finely divided leaves and an aromatic smell when crushed. It is superficially like Corn chamomile but is hairless with more finely divided leaves. A fuller account of the differences can be found in the description of Corn chamomile. NB Until recently this species was know by the old botanical name of Matricaria chamomilla.
