Scentless chamomile

Tripleurospermum perforatum

Doug Doohan, Ohio State University/ OARDC,  

An annual, biennial or short-lived perennial forb introduced from Europe that reproduces by seed. Stems can grow 3 to 6 feet tall. The flowers on scentless chamomile are daisy-like with one yellow, centered flower and white petals for every stem. Leaves are alternate, finely divided and resemble a fern, and are odorless when crushed.

Most commonly found in moist areas such as pastures, stream banks, fence lines and drainages. Scentless chamomile can be devastating to livestock by causing blistering on muzzles and irritation to mucous membranes. It is rare but may be found throughout Garfield County in small numbers.
