Equisetum hyemale

Dutch Rush, Scouring Rush, Rough Horsetail

A survivor of prehistoric times, Horsetails are rarely planted because they are so invasive and hard to eliminate. Confine to containers or water gardens. Rush-like, with hollow, striped stems that may look bushy, these were once used to make polishing and scouring agents.
