The bitter taste of the herb rue has led to it being associated with the verb rue "to regret".

It is mentioned in folklore and medieval handbooks on wellness but is now used primarily as an ornamental plant.  It is also cultivated as a medicinal herb, as a condiment, and to a lesser extent as an insect repellent.  Can cause severe skin irritation, especially in herbal preparations.
