How to Care for an Equisetum Hyemale

Also known as horsetail and scouring rush, Equisetum hyemale is a plant that was dominant on earth 350 million years ago, according to the Missouri Botanical Garden. It grows to 3 feet tall with hollow, jointed stems. Although the plant appears leafless, the brown rings around each joint on the stalk are considered its leaves. Equisetum hyemale is a water lover and does best when grown near ponds and other water features. It is hardy to zones 3 through 11 on the U.S. Department of Agriculture Plant Hardiness Zone Map.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

Pruning shearsShovel or sharp spade

Instructions

1 Grow Equisetum hyemale in full sun or partial shade.

2 Provide enough water to keep the soil consistently moist. Do not allow the soil to dry out or the plant will die.

3 Trim off brown and dead portions of the stems with sharp pruning shears.

4 Divide Equisetum hyemale in the spring. Drive a shovel or sharp spade into the middle of the plant and into the rootball to divide it in half. Dig up one half and plant it elsewhere.

Tips and warnings
