Syrian Rue is a perennial shrub with spiky leaves, growing up to, but normally under one meter tall. Also known as African rue, wild rue, harmal or Esfand, Syrian Rue is drought tolerant and has invasively spread throughout western North America during the last century. Syrian Rue has many traditional uses as dye, health tonic, to relieve anxiety, and as an antibacterial. It also has its place in traditional magic and religion. There is still much research to be done on Syrian Rue’s potential uses.
