Scented Mayweed

Scented Mayweed (Matricaria chamomilla) is also known as Chamomile. It is an annual or biennial scented plant with daisy like flowers that is locally found on sandy or loamy arable soils and on waste ground. It is not harmful but is not worth picking because the leaves are small and feathery and do not provide much in the way of forage. Although it is edible, it is better to leave the plant unpicked
