About Herb

Ruta graveolens, commonly called rue, is native to southern Europe. It is a glabrous, glaucous, woody-based, shrubby perennial with aromatic, fern-like, compound leaves. Pinnately divided, blue-green leaves have oblong/spatulate segments. The foliage has a pungent aroma when bruised and leaves have a bitter taste.

Small, 4- to 5-petaled, dull yellow flowers in clusters (flattened corymbs) bloom above the foliage in early summer. The fruit is a brown seed capsule. The ornamental value lies in the delicate blue-green foliage.
