Anthemis tinctoria 'Kelwayii' (Golden Marguerite)

Golden Marguerite 'Kelwayii', Golden Chamomile 'Kelwayii', Oxeye Chamomile 'Kelwayii', Dyer's Chamomile 'Kelwayii'


Fast growing, Anthemis tinctoria 'Kelwayi' creates mounds of finely divided, aromatic foliage, with masses of bright yellow daisy-like flowers with a mission to flower profusely throughout summer. Its 2 in. wide (5 cm) flowers are slightly larger than those of the species. A prolific plant for a sunny border, 'Kelwayi' is a vigorous perennial that will add long-lasting color and contrast to the summer perennial border.

  • Grows in aromatic mounds up to 2-3 feet tall (60-90 cm) with finely divided, mid-green leaves. Evergreen in mild climates, its lovely foliage, which has an herbal fragrance reminiscent of chamomile, will add some winter interest to the border.
  • Thrives in full sun in averagedry to mediumwell-drained soils. Good drainage is essential to survival. Poor soilshotdry and lean situations are tolerated. The more fertile and the more it is watered, the more this plant will sprawl. 
  • Drought tolerant and deer resistant, but attractive to butterflies!
  • Very hardy and easy to grow, Anthemis tinctoria is a good choice for areas of the garden that are dry or of low fertility.
  • Mixes beautifully with ornamental grasses or any other perennial plants and looks stunning planted in informal drifts. It provides a striking contrast of form and color when mixed with the vertical purple spikes of Salvia Superba or the egg-shaped flower heads of Allium Sphaerocephalon (Drumstick Allium), delicately turning from green to purple as they mature. It makes excellent cut flowers!
  • Deadheading will extend the flowering season and your plant might still be in bloom in fall! It will also prevent self-seeding. Once flowering has ceased and the plant has died back, the stems should be cut down.
  • Propagate by seed in pots in a cold frame in spring or propagate by division in spring or root basal cuttings in late spring to early summer
