Botanical Name

ANTHEMIS tinctoria 'Sauce Hollandaise'

Plant Common Name

Golden Chamomile, Golden Marguerite, Sauce Hollandaise Golden Marguerite

General Description

Commonly called golden Marguerite or ox-eye chamomile, Anthemis tinctoria is a fast-growing clump-forming perennial. And, the vigorous cultivar 'Sauce Hollandaise' has creamy yellow daisies unlike standard forms, which are gold-flowered.

This easy-to-grow ornamental has a bushy habit and puts forth ferny green foliage in spring. It flowers in early to midsummer offering a mass of small butter-yellow daisies. These are lightly fragrant and attractive to butterflies.

Golden Marguerite needs full sun, average to fertile soil with good drainage and is surprisingly drought tolerant once established. One setback to growing this plant is its tendency to self-sow. It helps to cut back its spent flowers to keep seeds from setting.

Any plant with the name "tinctoria" in the botanical name is a natural dye plant. Historically, Anthemis tinctoria was used to make a bright yellow dye for textiles. 'Sauce Hollandaise' is great for sunny perennial borders and pairs well with blue-flowered salvias and pink dianthus.
