Also called golden chamomile, oxeye chamomile or Dyer’s chamomile, the beautiful perennial golden marguerite (Anthemis tinctoria) can brighten your cottage garden with its daisy-like flowers; the petals may be white or yellow. The plant grows two to three feet tall, but shorter versions are available. Golden marguerite blooms in late spring; deadheading stimulates more flowering through the summer. Well-drained soil is essential.
