Rattlesnake Master, Eryngium yuccifolium, is a unique wildflower best known for its bristly, spherical flowers. Named for its spiky basal foliage which strongly resembles the yucca plant, the silvery blue-green color of both foliage and flowers is notable. This plant will stand out in any garden, individually or in groups. Attractive to a variety of pollinators, the highly textured flowers and leaves are unpalatable to both deer and rabbits. Native Americans brewed a tea from the root as an antidote to rattlesnake venom. Other common names include Button Snakeroot, Yucca-leaf Eryngo.
