Ruta graveolens 'Jackman's Blue'

Out of the herb garden comes this lovely blue leaved plant which makes a stunning 3 season accent for many color schemes. This sterile form of Rue has yellow blossoms held just above the 2' clumps of neat and tidy foliage, attracts bees and butterflies but not deer.
