Yellow-Rattle, Coxcone, or Penny-Grass, Rhinanthus Crista-Galli, L. a native plant, growing in meadows, pastures, and woods ; blowing in the months of June and July. - This vegetable sometimes overspreads whole meadows with its yellow flowers : in a green state, it is eagerly eaten by cattle; but, when dry, it forms a hard and tough fodder. Hence, careful farmers cut off the flowers, before the seed attains to maturity, in order to prevent its propagation.
