Equisetum Japonicum - Barred Horsetail Reed


The barred horsetail is a pretty member of the horsetail family, the fleshy, evergreen stems being barred with black rings accentuating the beauty of the foliage. Plant in clumps for striking effect.

Will grow to 80 cm tall.

The Barred horsetail is a striking and unusual subject for shallow water planting. Attractive throughout the year, the evergreen stems are valued for providing winter interest. Plant in a medium or large container using aquatic soil covered with pea gravel.

An excellent plant for contrasting with flowering subjects.

Equisetum reproduces by spores that are grown on cones at the top of the stems.

This plant comes to you in a 1 litre pond pot and is ready to be put straight into your pond or bog garden.
