The American Botanist, Vol. 15 free pdf Excerpt from The American Botanist, Vol. 15 One of the most familiar of weeds is a certain little plant with bushy- finely dissected foliage, which we have all seen on urban commons and vacant lots where the grass is kept close cropped by goats and goslings. In the country its favorite haunt is back of the barn and in the lane, though sometimes, too, we find it out front by the road in the congenial company of such democratic herbs as pigweed, ragweed and milkweed. Late in June it begins to display its pretty flowers which are exact duplicates of the ox-eye daisy, except that they are not so large as the latter. All through the summer these daisy-like blossoms may be seen cheerfully nodding to simple souls that find pleasure in quiet, everyday beauty- but should you be tempted to gather a bunch of the flowers, you will find the plant has so unpleasant and weedy an odor that you will probably throw your posy away in disgust. This rank smell is a characteristic which gives a key to one of its common names, to wit, the fetid chamomile (Anthemis cotula). It is indeed a poor relation of that bitter chamomile which is so important an item in the winter supply of medicinal herbs wherewith old-fashioned country housewives still hang the garret rafters. Common as it is on Uncle Sams farm, the plant is by no means an aboriginal American, but an immigrant within couple of hundred years from Europe.
