For a natural garden full of biodiversity.
Galega officinalis, also known as Goat's rue, French lilac or Italian fitch is an opulent perennial of the Fabaceae family.
Its interesting foliage gives lightness to a bed. Summer flowering in 20 cm bunches of numerous white or pale mauve flowers makes it an even more attractive plant.
Sturdy, easy to grow and very hardy, Galega officinalis can be planted in most regions in the sun or partial shade in ordinary, not too dry soil.
In the garden, we like Galega officinalis as it looks like a wild flower. Foraging bees and insects like it, too!
