Botanical name: 

Chamomile needs to be dried on cloth or similar, as the strongest part of the flower, the yellow bit, tends to fall to pieces - you can hang it up in bundles, but you'll lose much of the strength of it. The herb is of course dried in a shady spot indoors. Annala, Helsinki, Finland. Picked. 2005-07-06.
