Rattlesnake Master (Eryngium Yuccifolium) - Grown from Eryngium seeds, this unique plant grows well in full sun and moist to slightly dry conditions. With the common name of Rattlesnake Master, Eryngium Yuccifolium has bluish green foliage and spherical flower heads that measure 1/2 - 1 inch across that are made up of many small flowers. The overall appearance is rough and prickly, and the Rattlesnake Master flower heads blooms from late summer through fall. You can grow Rattlesnake Master in light shade; however, it will eventually become spindly in shadier conditions. Since it can be quite top heavy when in bloom, it may topple over in windy conditions if planted from flower seeds in areas that contain too much shade. Eryngium Yuccifolium Rattlesnake Master is easy to grow and is not hampered by disease nor insects.
The Rattlesnake Master plant was used by American Indians and pioneers who thought the roots could be used as an effective antidote for a rattlesnake bite. However, there is no true medical benefit for snake bites.
