Pineapple weed

Pineapple weed (Matricaria discoidea) is also known as Mayweed or Wild Chamomile. It grows in poor soil around footpaths, field entrances, waste ground, and roadsides. The flowers exude a pineapple smell when crushed. It is a favourite with rabbits but seldom grows in large enough numbers to be picked regularly.
