Horsetail - Equisetum hyemale also called rough horsetail or scouring rush—is a non-flowering evergreen perennial.
It has vertical green stems with horizontal bands similar to bamboo, but they're skinnier and taller like ornamental grass.
Horsetail is usually planted in early spring, though it will survive planting at almost any time.
This is an extremely fast-growing plant that achieves full height within a matter of weeks. Horsetail is toxic to grazing animals.
