Equisetum hyemale


Availability : Available

Description :

Long green stems with black stripes.

Prehistoric!! This rough horsetail, whose ancestors grew in forests over 250 million years, will give a Japanese touch to your garden.

A word of warning! Once established Equisetum hyemale grows at a diabolical rate! Astonishing and very original in pots. It has great graphic qualities if you plant it in an old galvanised or enamelled tub or basin.

Diameter of the stems: more than 1 cm.

Height: more than 1 metre!!

Grow in the sun in damp earth.

The Equisetum genus is part of the Equisetaceae family and includes many species, some of which have caught the attention of gardeners and florists for their seemingly modern design, which is why Equisetum hyemale is now commonly used in floral art.
