Plant Overview

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.

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.

The flowers dry well for storage. 

Height and spread: 50cm x 40cm

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

Synonyms: Cota tinctoria



All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. 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 almost everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
