Cota tinctoria has finely cut, aromatic, glaucous green leaves.
It forms more or less dense, tall and spreading tufts, depending on the variety and the conditions of the environment where the plant grows.
Its flowers are united in flower heads resembling yellow daisies, carried by a tall stem above the foliage.
Flowering occurs in a staggered and uninterrupted manner from spring to the first frosts.

Dyer's Chamomile generally thrives in poor, rocky, and abandoned soils - such as scree, old walls, and railroad tracks.
In garden soils of average fertility, it will grow very fast and the plant can become large.

For the beauty of its bloom, Cota tinctoria is cultivated in gardens as an ornamental plant with strong ground covering and suffocating powers.
Perfect to furnish rockeries, create high borders, and manage difficult slopes.

It is often grown as a Biennial, since its vigor wears off over time, but it can also be grown as an Annual, since it will bloom in the year of sowing.

All parts of the plant have medicinal properties: Antispasmodic, Diaphoretic, Emetic, and Emmenagogue.
Cota tinctoria can also be Irritating and Blistering in some people.

Traditionally in the West, Anthemis tinctoria is one of the main sources of Yellow Pigment (primary color with blue and red).
It was also used as a source of Yellow colors in natural textile dyeing, hence its name of Dyer's Chamomile.

Today, several horticultural selections exist, but we only offer seeds of the botanical species, to allow you traditional uses.

Sow the seeds of Yellow Chamomile in April, warm, packed on the surface of a moist soil, in godets placed in the sun.
Plant the young plants in their final location in May, in a very sunny position.
They will start blooming at the end of June.

To use the flower heads of Dyer's Chamomile in natural dyeing, harvest them when the first flower crowns bloom in the flower head core.
They can be used fresh immediately or dehydrated later.
