An old fashion perennial herb that used to be grown for its medicinal purpose, but was then proved to be slightly poisonous if consumed in large quantities. However, the strong smell of Rue makes it a great companion plant for an insect-repelling purpose. The plant will grow up to 1 m tall and the fernlike leaves make it an attractive low contact ornamental plant.
