Horsetail (Equisetum Hyemale)

$8.99

Horsetail has an ancient history as a medicinal herb, and is treasured by many for its supposed healing properties. While we at Scarlett Gardens recommend exercising caution when consuming it, and in fact consulting a doctor first, we do believe it’s a gorgeous plant for any pond or water garden. With bamboo-like stems, this plant will add an interesting and eye-catching texture that will accent other pond plants well.

Description

Horsetail has an ancient history as a medicinal herb, and is treasured by many for its supposed healing properties. While we at Scarlett Gardens recommend exercising caution when consuming it, and in fact consulting a doctor first, we do believe it’s a gorgeous plant for any pond or water garden. With bamboo-like stems, this plant will add an interesting and eye-catching texture that will accent other pond plants well.

Care is very easy, as with many of our water plants. Horsetail thrives in poor soil, and will do well in places where other plants may die, making it an excellent choice for the “patchy” areas of your pond border. Their soil should remain wet at all times, making them ideal for pond borders. The plant spreads rapidly, so care should be taken to ensure it doesn’t overtake the pond. You may choose to remove portions of it every now and then, or alternatively plant it in a bottomless container, which will keep the roots from spreading too much.
