An annual herbaceous plant. The stem is erect, highly branched, 30-60 cm high. Leaves are 2-5 cm long, doubly pinnately dissected into narrow filiform lobules, alternate, sessile.
The flowers are collected in baskets on long peduncles located at the ends of the shoots. The growing season is short - 60-70 days. The above-ground mass is removed during the period of mass flowering. To harvest, chamomile is mowed, dried and stored in a well-ventilated area.
