Phytophototoxic Rue Burns and Other Garden Wonders

If you work with rue (Ruta graveolens), be careful.  I love the looks of rue.  It is a magnet for parsley worms (black swallowtail butterflies).  It can be a delicate, graceful plant in a cottage garden.  However, if you get the sap on your skin while working in the sun, you can get burns.

Enjoy this day!
