Plant for ID :: Rome :: EU-ARKOCT52 : 7 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (3)
Saw this flower by the roadside in Rome in May 2016.
Requested to provide ID.

Probably Matricaria sp.

Can this be Matricaria chamomilla as per Gurcharan ji’s post (recurved florets and finely dissected leaves)

No, leave appear to be different.

Out of 2 sp., Matricaria discoidea DC. and Matricaria chamomilla L.,  having distribution in Italy, Matricaria chamomilla L.  looks more matching.
