Ruta Graveolens

(Common Rue)

Back to Herbs

Ruta Graveolens
This is a fantastic, summer flowering herb with deeply divided, aromatic foliage. Unusual, bright yellow flowers are produced in upright clusters throughout the summer, sometimes being used for medical purposes. Evergreen when grown in sheltered spots, semi-evergreen or deciduous if exposed to frosts or cold winds.

It is a fully hardy variety which should be grown in full sun where a well-drained, fertile soil is available. Old wood should be cut back in spring to maintain its compact and neat growth habit.

Caution: We recommend that you wear gloves when handling as this plant may cause a skin reaction.
