Strictly Medicinal Organic Rue

Strictly Medicinal Organic Rue

Very Showy Plant with Bright Yellow Flowers

Rue - Ruta graveolens

Woody perennial native to the mediterranean. Hardy to - 30 degrees F. This is a very showy landscape plant, with long-lived blooms of bright yellow giving way to oily pods that look like tiny oranges.

Wash hands or other body parts that contact the plant with soap after handling, as the plant can cause photosensitive dermatitis in predisposed individuals. This mainly occurs if you really hug the plant in the full sun on a sweaty day, but in any case, you may wish to wear gloves.

    Certified organic, 100 seeds/pkt.
