Rue

  • Botanical Name: Ruta graveolens

The Herb of Grace. Traditionally holy water was sprinkled during Mass with a brush made of Rue. Aromatic shrub with attractive blue-green foliage and a pungent aroma. Good for short hedges or borders due to upright, bushy habit. It is an effective fly repellent. Dogs and cats hate it so if neighbourhood pets are a problem, plant Rue to deter them. Prune plants back each spring and apply lime.

Matures 75 days from transplant.
