Lady Macbeth says this - she is speaking to Macbeth as she tells him to look innocent while preparing to kill Duncan. She is telling him to look like a flower (beautiful and innocent), but still he should be ready to attack like a snake lying in wait. This is her way of showing him how to prepare to kill Duncan.
