Botrychium matricariifolium (orth.var. B. matricariaefolium) is a common species of fern known by the common names chamomile grape-fern, daisyleaf grape-fern, and matricary grape-fern. It is native to Europe and parts of eastern North America, including eastern Canada and parts of the United States.[2]

This fleshy fern grows up to 30 centimeters tall.[3] It produces dull green sterile leaf blades up to 10 centimeters long by 9 wide divided into a few pairs of segments. The fertile leaves are a bit longer and bear the spores.[2]
