Greens and Sulfurs #1 – Rue

I seem to have a love for plants with dusty green foliage and sulfur-yellow flowers. I first grew rue in grade school. I don’t know how I ended up with it but it is always successful in heavy clay and difficult weather conditions. It is a medicinal herb also, though I have no idea what you would use it for, I use it as an ornamental perennial.

They are fairly easy to grow from seed, if a little slow, so that is what I do. I grow my rue from seed. The leaf shape is unique, it would be a fun leaf shape to use as a pattern for, well, whatever.

Here are the flowers, up close. Theses pictures were taken on a very sunny day.
