Description

This lovely platter is impressed with the leaves of Tall Rattlesnake Root.  What a GREAT name for a native wildflower!  These are the leaves that grow more at the bottom of the plant.  The leaves get less lobed and far less complicated the farther up the plant stem they grow.  And then…and then…just as tall rattlesnake root is about to bloom along the Creek Road, near Boonesville, where I find it most often, the highway department comes and mows.  GRRRRRR.  I have seen it bloom once or twice–the flowers are tiny little yellowish white things, not nearly as grand as those lower leaves, IMHO.  13″ diameter.
