The Butter-and-Eggs

Of the snapdragon family, butter-and-eggs put out clublike spikes of yellow and orange flowers. They are unmistakable.
"It yields what at one time was considered a valuable skin lotion; its juice, mingled with milk, constitutes a fly poison." (Griffin.)
Butter-and-eggs will be found in dry fields and waste places. It is one of the few wildflowers which grow well in the city.
