Goat's Rue forms attractive mounds and bears lovely bi-colored flowers! Goat's rue is a source of rotenone, a substance poisonous to cold blooded animals but not warm blooded. Native Americans pulverized the root, bark, stems and sometimes leaves and tossed this substance into a pool of water. Fish were poisoned or stunned by the rotenone and floated to the top allowing the Indians to gather the fish! At one time this plant was fed to goats to increase milk production!
