>Ruta graveolens :the leaves do smell especially if crushed. once upon a
time it was used when making "claret cup"!!! It was also used in the
treatment of various diseases of poultry and cattle. In my experience l
although it is correctly described as a shrub, it behaves more like a
herbaceous plant.Not very interesting .
