Evergreen foliage on Rue


By Siris

Evergreen foliage on Rue (Ruta graveolens (Common rue))

Glaucous foliage on the herb Rue, clipped to form a small shrub. Such a blue coloured plant, smothered with small yellow flowers in Summer.

Welcome to GOU, Ann.
Mmm, difficult to describe, maybe tart. I only ever smell it whilst trimming it. Apparently a sprig or two will keep away fleas, never had the need to do this. I wonder about mosies?
