Pineapple weed

Pineapple weed (Matricaria discoidea) is also known as Mayweed or Wild Chamomlie. It grows in poor soil around foot paths, field entrances, waste ground and road sides. 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.
