I think my rue really likes where it's planted! They say a Polish girl should have rue in her garden and I have had wonderful luck with it, both here and in Texas. This plant propagated itself, so I dug up the baby today to give to a friend. With all the rain we've been having you'd think the soil would be easy to dig. HA! It was hard as a rock. I kept digging and digging, those roots were so long, I thought I'd dug all the way to China. I finally got the baby rue out. I guess it didn't want to go!
