Common Rue (Ruta graveolens)

  • Common Rue is a low maintenance culinary plant that would be great for beginner gardeners.
  • The rue herb (Ruta graveolens) is considered to be an old fashioned herb garden plant.
  • While little known, growing rue herb in the garden can be helpful to a gardener in a number of ways.
  • Its strong smell is a repellent to many creatures, including dogs, cats, and Japanese beetles.
  • Because of this, it makes an excellent companion plant.
  • It has semi-woody growth, which means that it can be pruned into hedges.
  • Rue plants have bluish-green, fernlike leaves that are bushy and compact.
  • The flowers on the rue herb are yellow with petals that are frilly on the edges and the center of the flower is normally green.
LIGHT
  • Rue flowers grow well in full sun, but partial shade is also tolerated.
  • Plants will produce fewer flowers in the shade.
WATER
  • Common rue is very drought tolerant and is a good candidate for the xeriscape or rock garden.
  • Do not irrigate rue, except for periods of extensive dry weather.
SOIL
  • Sharp drainage is important for healthy rue flowers.
  • Add sand, perlite, or vermiculite to the soil to help drainage.
  • Use raised beds in gardens with heavy clay.
FERTILIZER
  • Do not apply fertilizer to rue flowers.
  • Excess nutrients will cause the plants to produce more foliage at the expense of the flowers.
