About This Species
Scentless chamomile prefers moist soil conditions. It can produce up to 1,000,000 seeds every year, and the seeds can survive in the soil for up to 15 years. This plant can aggressively take over pastures, grasslands, and other agricultural areas. If colonies form near aquatic areas, the plants can easily crowd out other plants entirely.
How to Identify
Growing from 15 cm to 1 m tall, mature plants have flowers like a daisy with white petals and a yellow center. Leaves are small and look like frilly carrot leaf tops that grow all along the length of the stem. Oxeye daisy looks similar, however its flowers are larger and leaves are not carrot-like.
