(Matricaria inodora L.)

38. Scentless Mayweed

There are several daisy-flowered plants with which this might be confused, some of them strongly scented, pleasantly or otherwise. The scentless mayweed, with no smell at, is a soft green plant, its foliage cut into a mass of extremely fine segments. The flower-head, with yellow disk, and white spreading ray florets, is about two inches across. This mayweed is often very abundant on waste ground. A closely related form grows on sea cliffs.
