Chamomile Varieties for Lawns

Chamaemelum nobile grows to a minimum height of approximately 150-200mm (6-8 inches) depending on the environment it is growing in, which would not suit most people as a lawn. Have you developed or do you know of any varieties that only grow to a maximum height of 50mm (2 inches)?

English lawn chamomile is the lowest growing variety we have. I would suggest you try a few plants to see how tall they get under your conditions and if they are still too tall, try some of the very compact thymes, such as minimum thyme or caraway thyme.
