Ruta graveolens
An aromatic shrub with attractive blue-green foliage and a deliciously pungent aroma reminiscent of coconut. Used as a culinary herb by some cultures but is toxic in large quantities, so caution advised.  It is a long history of use as a domestic herbal remedy in the treatment of various ailments but noteably for its action in strengthening the eyes. Again, caution advised.  Effective at repelling flies, and said to be a good companion plant to roses and raspberries.  The dried plant can also be used in wardrobes to repel moths.  It is also disliked by dogs and cats.  A red dye can be obtained from the plant.  Height approx 60cm.
