If you look at the cursive writing below the top picture in your link it says "Anthemis nobilis" which is roman chamomile.I read someplace that Anthemis nobilis was changed to Chamaemelum nobile.
So they are both the same thing.
Either way you cant go wrong.
Then when you scroll down you see Matricaria recutica

They even give you the soil type and ph.
