Chamaemelum is a small genus of plants in the daisy family known generally as dogfennels. Perhaps the best-known dogfennel is Roman Chamomile, Chamaemelum nobile, syn. Anthemis nobilis. These are annual or perennial herbs, rarely exceeding half a meter in height and usually bearing solitary white daisylike flowers with yellow centers. They are native to Europe but most species can be found scattered in other continents where they have been introduced.[2][3]

Species

* Chamaemelum fuscatum - dusky dogfennel
* Chamaemelum mixtum - weedy dogfennel
