Golden Marguerite: Our Favorite Flowers
2010, Dorling Kindersley Limited
Golden Marguerite is one of a variety of perennials that are used in cottage style gardens because of their loose, carefree look and beautiful large blooms that attract bees and butterflies. Many are heirlooms used in country gardens for centuries.
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.
