Horsetail Reeds (Equisetum Hyemale) is a beautiful bamboo-like plant that is a non-flowering evergreen perennial that typically grows 2-5’ tall. It has a slender, green, reed-type ornamental grass with a tiny leaf on its stems. This plant is native to Eurasia, and North America.

They are used as an herbal medication back to ancient Roman and Greek medicine to stop bleeding and cure wounds. You can plant them in a pot and place them in an area where there is a wet condition or grow them as an accent along borders. This plant thrives in full sun to partial shades and moist soil.

Growing them requires little care once established. Horsetail is a winter hardy plant. Allow the water to dry before watering again, and make sure there is an excellent draining hole in the pot to prevent root rot. You can propagate them via division.

You can grow them in USDA Hardiness Zone 4-9.


These Horsetail reeds are always a head-turner with their vibrant green stems! There is nothing like a beautiful, easy-to-grow live plant in your garden or home! Horsetail is also commonly used as a live privacy fence for landscapes!

Just in case you didn’t know, Horsetail is the easiest live plant to grow, this is a perennial plant so it will come back year after year. It will grow in rocks, sand, soil, moss, and water which makes it a great pond plant as well. I have literally seen it grow in between the rocks on a railroad track. Also, these indoor-outdoor plants thrive in all seasons. I mean for real, it is like the wonder plant of all plants. It has been around since pre-historic times!

  6. Eastern White Pine saplings arrived today. Very healthy, bare roots and packaged safely. Much better quality than many online nurseries. We have them soaking in cold water and a couple aspirin before planting in outdoor pots tomorrow. After a couple years in the pots we’ll transfer them into the ground. We are at the bottom of planting zone 8 and in limestone laden Texas hill country soil. We are going to try these in well amended acidic soil and fingers cross they will grow into wonderful additions to the arbor diversification we are trying to create in our phase 2 forest regrowth.

  9. May I suggest cardboard boxes with ventilation ? Horsetail plants are very hardy and beautiful plants… but, I have to be honest- these plants took a tremendous amount of abuse! They were shipped in a slightly padded envelope… where they were at the mercy of USPS for over a week. When delivered, instead of USPS walking over to my porch and ringing the bell, USPS left them inside of my black metal mailbox during 90 + degree weather in August… where they baked in the metal box for SIX HOURS before I happened to log into my e-mail account and receive a delivery message ! Some of the stems were yellow and I had to throw them into the trash. The plants that made it through the torment… are actually very decent in appearance, especially in light of what they endured before I took them out of the packaging.
