A jointed and fibrous root provides a foundation for its hairy stem and threadlike leaves. The flower, a long solitary drooping bud, isn’t seen until late July and August. Its yellow center and white petals make the Chamomile bear a strong resemblance to the daisy. Chamomile can be found throughout Europe, North Africa and the temperate areas of Asia.
