horsetail

Equisetum hyemale

Hollow, segmented, tubular stems grow to 4′ tall and grow in dry soils to wet, marginal pond conditions. An ancient native plant, limestone fossils are easy to find in local rock. Makes a great Japanese style garden subject, but spreads rampantly. Plant in contained areas, or in places where its spread won’t overcome other plantings. Excellent greenery in cut flower arrangements. Super-cool container specimen plant all by itself. NATIVE TO NORTH AMERICA.
