General Description: This is really one of the most remarkable plants. It is universal, grows quietly and sweetly, propagating by creeping roots and seeds and giving every roadside a spurge of white, pink and violet every year. The Chinese have used the stalks for divination for thousands of years. Used in Elizabethan England as a medicine it is one of the common plants of the world which requires a book to be written about its contribution to humanity. It has undergone something of a renaissance on its adoption by aromatherapists. Like Camomile, the plant is popular in medicine and herbal teas. It is deeper blue than Roman Camomile, which is due to azulene present in the plant, but is produced during steam distillation. Only produced in small quantities
