An evergreen perennial shrub, rue fragrant is known as a medicinal plant. Reaches 1 m in height, cold-resistant, in severe frost requires shelter. It takes root well on any soil, but does not tolerate excess moisture.

In medicine, all parts of the shrub are used – it has bactericidal, anti-inflammatory, healing effects, it is used for diseases of the nervous system, gastrointestinal problems.
