Always a Joy …

It’s always a joy to find Rattlesnake Master (Eryngium yuccifolium) on the prairie. This beauty grows to 4-foot high and is spreading throughout the prairie I’ve been working. Over the past 3 years, I find more of it growing, and in more locations, each year that I work this area. It has a few common names, such as Yucca-leaf Eryngo and Button Snakeroot. This plant’s root extract was supposed to be effective against snake poison. It’s leaves are similar in appearance to yucca leaves.
