Eryngium yuccifolium (Apiaceae)
(eh-RINGH-ee-um yuk-eh-FOL-ee-um)
Rattlesnake Master

2016 NC Wildflower of the Year. Strappy grey-green yucca-like foliage, with sturdy branching stems topped by white spiky pom-pom blooms in July and August. Though it looks like a desert plant, this grassland-dweller is actually native to much of the Eastern US. Rattlesnake Master is happy in moist-to-dry, sandy or loamy soils. An architectural beauty in the low meadow or scree garden exciting and unusual popping out amongst Coneflowers, Black-Eyed-Susans, and grasses.
