Equisetum hyemale-Rough Horsetail

Propagating Rough Horsetail is simple, however be aware it is invasive if it is not planted in a container, because it grows by underground rhizomes and since it is a moisture loving plant it is not easy to locate rhizomes under water. This plant could date from the Paleozoic Era and existed for millions of years because extinct fossils with stems the size of tree trunks have been discovered. It is native almost world wide from North and Central America, Asia and Europe. It can grow up to 5' is evergreen in some locales and its hardiness Zone is 3-11. It’s stems reminds one of Bamboo.
