This is an excellent accent plant for difficult soils in arid

scientific evidence to support older claims of medicinal
properties by Native Americans. James Adair, an
18th-century Indian trader, was one of the first to document
medicinal uses of Rattlesnake Master. He recounted tales in
which Indians chewed the root, blew it on their hands, and
then handled rattlesnakes without any damage. Despite these
stories, this use was not widespread.  The root was more
often used in bitter teas as an antidote for various maladies,
These included venereal disease, snakebites, impotence,
