Plant Details

Deeply cut ferny green foliage is the perfect foil for beautiful yellow daisy flowers which cover the plant throughout much of summer. 

Flowers from May to September. Likes a sunny, open situation in well-drained soil. Loved by bees and butterflies. Very good in tubs and containers, as well as the border.

A British native plant which was traditionally used for producing warm-yellow coloured dye for textiles. The flowers are collected in summer and used fresh, or dried for use over winter. The colours are said to work better on wool and silk, than cotton.

Height and spread: 50cm x 40cm

Common name(s): Dyer's chamomile, Golden Marguerite.

Synonyms: Cota tinctoria

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
