Rattlesnake Master Characteristics
Rattlesnake Master are prairie perennials that can be planted in dry, drought prone areas for a naturalized appearance or to assist with erosion control. They may propagate via self seeding in ideal conditions. They may lose height and sprawl in overly fertile soils or part shade. Do not attempt to transplant once established due to the deep taproots.
Rattlesnake Master has few serious insect or disease issues. The long stalks may fall with height. Planting in mass can assist as plants can provide support for each other.
