Rattlesnake Master

I'm learning more about native plants lately, and I got one at the plant swap called Rattlesnake Master.  It's a prairie plant, native to North America, and it makes sense that my friend Joan brought it to the plant swap - her yard is almost entirely native.

After reading about it, it seemed the place for it was in the desert garden.  Being a prairie plant, I think it should be drought tolerant, once established.  And it has an interesting look to it - it should compliment the coneflowers nicely.  It's still small, but hopefully it will get bigger and bloom.  We'll be waiting for that!
