Goats Rue

Goat’s Rue is herbaceous perennial plant whose flowers look like mini sweet peas. Its fragrant lavender-blue flower spikes are noticeable from Summer to Autumn.

This plant’s alternate compound leaves are like vetch; they are widely spreading leaves with 9-25 leaflets, medium green to grayish green, oblong in shape, smooth and the large roots like to fix nitrogen in the soil.

Folklore of Goats Rue: 

Goat’s rue has been used in traditional European herbalism for hundreds of years. Medieval Europeans first noticed that the plant increased milk production in livestock when eaten. Goat’s rue, sometimes called Holy Hay, was first mentioned by dairy farmer Gillet-Damitte in 1873 to the French Academy in a letter where he describes milk production increased between 35 to 50 percent in his cows when given this herb.
