The Common Rue (Ruta graveolens), also known as Herb-of-Grace, is a species of rue grown as a herb. It is native to the Balkan Peninsula, southeastern Europe.
It is sometimes grown as an ornamental plant in gardens, especially because of its bluish leaves, and also sometimes for its tolerance of hot and dry soil conditions. It also is cultivated as both a medicinal herb, as a condiment, and to a lesser extent as an insect repellent.
The caterpillars of Papilio machaon butterfly species feed on Rue, among other kinds of plants.
