Naturally found along river edges and low-lying wet areas throughout North America, this vertical grass-like plant has many slender hollow jointed stems that are bright green with a ring of black and grey fringe at each stem node. These branchless flowerless stems spread by rhizomes or, like ferns, reproduce by spores and grow well in both sun or shade with regular or occasional irrigation. Although effective in some gardens, Scouring Rush Horsetail can be invasive due to its vigorous growth habit and is best kept contained.

Plant Care

Plant in well-draining soil. Water regularly during the first year to aid the plant in establishing a strong root system, frequency can be cut back once established.
