More Information

Description Rue (Ruta graveolens) is a charming perennial with evergreen foliage. Aromatic, fern-like leaves take on blue-green hues and release a sweet and spicy fragrance when touched. It's a pollinator powerhouse, but not in the way you'd expect! Small clusters of yellow flowers bloom in summer, but that's not why pollinators love it. It's the first-choice food source for caterpillars of many swallowtail butterfly species. Plant it in your garden to invite butterflies to visit, lay eggs, and call your garden home! Note: Rue has been known to irritate those with sensitive skin. Avoid planting near pathways or common areas. We recommend those with sensitive skin wear garden gloves when planting and handling.

It hasn't settled in yet.

I am between zone 4-5b and we planted the rue in full sun in a very stable mature bed. It started out with a few yellowing leaves and it has not settled in yet. It has been a month and it still looks like it did when we planted it. There has been no growth or dying off, it is exactly the same size it was when it came out of the box. We buy a lot of plants on line and GreatGardenPlants has a very good track record with us. Their shipping and packing is excellent.

We have not given up hope and we want to give the rue it a few more weeks. It looks fine, but it hasn't "taken" to the earth in any noticeable way. One of nature's little mysteries.
