Summary and Origin Edit
Rue (Ruta graveolens), also commonly known as common rue or herb-of-grace, is a species of Ruta grown as an ornamental plantand herb. It is native to the Balkan Peninsula. It is now grown throughout the world in gardens, especially for its bluish leaves, and sometimes for its tolerance of hot and dry soil conditions. It is also cultivated as a medicinal herb, as a condiment, and to a lesser extent as an insect repellent.
Rue fruit are very tiny and are like tiny green berry-like chunks clumped together.
Rue flowers are yellow-coloured.
