The Voynich Manuscript: Rue

Rue (Ruta Chalapensis) may be a possibility for plant id for fol. 90v of the Voynich manuscript.  German common names for Rue refer to the plant as Raute (rhombus) which may explain the edgy flower petals. Rue is repellant for cats (they hate the smell of it) which may explain the root.
