I am a big fan of chamomile, both the German and Roman varieties. I grew some German chamomile for my neighbor who is a very elderly man and is from Germany. He was a field photographer during the war. He always talked about how at night he and his comrades would gather the chamomile flowers and make tea. He is pretty much bed ridden at this point. So I thought it would be nice to grow him some chamomile to enjoy.
He says that what I grew for him was very similar to what he remembers, but the flowers were much larger on the ones they picked. I'm wondering if there is another variety that I don't know about that could be what he speaks of. Any help would be appreciated.
