overview
The Horsetail Rush, also known as the Scouring Rush, is one of the oldest plants to be used by man. It reaches heights to 4 feet, and is a durable plant. It has jointed, hollow stems that are furrowed and green with black bands that give it a bamboo-like appearance.

Plant in 2-gallon containers in sun to part shade with moist soil to a 2" depth. While the plant remains green year-round, old stems that have died are dried and brown. Prune them out for best plant appearance. This plant can become invasive when planted in soil near a pond or stream. Zones 4-11.

Approximate Purchase Size: 12" to 18"
