Rattlesnake Master matures to a height of 4' and has white "bristly" flowers. It is typically found in medium-wet to medium soils and prefers sites with full sun. The latin name, Eryngium yuccifolium, comes from the fact that the leaves look very much like a Yucca plant. In the past Rattlesnake Master has been used medicinally by Native Americans as a diaphoretic. The roots have also been used to treat liver troubles.
