Ruta gravelons. Also known as Herb of Grace.
Native to the Mediterranean, this woody perennial is one of the oldest used medicinal / magical plant.
Traditionally taken to treat poor eyesight, headaches, sciatica and varicose veins. Generally the plant is no longer taken internally as it can be toxic in larger doses. It was believed to have anti-spasmodic and stimulant properties and was apparently a favourite of Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo as a creativity enhancer.
Preferring a full sun position, Rue will reward you with lovely yellow flowers. It also can be useful in repelling insects and cats.
You can plant the coir pot directly into the ground, which will eliminate root disturbance and help keep your plant happy. The roots will make their way through the pot and into the soil. The pot itself will decompose within two months. Alternatively, you can use it as a decorative pot plant as the coir pot will last between 12-18 months (then you can plant it in the ground).
