Ruta graveolens 'Curly Girl'
Common Name: Rue

Ruta graveolens 'Curly Girl'
Zoom In Photo:

One of my favorite foliage plants that tolerates shade as well as sun. Shear back once the spring gets warm, to get a good mound of blue green foliage. Try it with black Mondo grass (Omphipogen nigrescens )and Primula vulgaris.
