POND PLANT BIO:
A perfect selection for a wet boggy area of the landscape or at the edge of a pond or stream; masses of towering bamboo-like spikes with black bands creates a bold vertical effect that makes an excellent backdrop for a water feature or even a shallow container garden. Barred Horsetail’s attractive spiny leaves remain green in color with pointy black spines throughout the season. Equisetum reproduces by spores that are grown on cones at the top of the stems so neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant. But…who cares?! Its low-maintenance evergreen stems provide winter interest, and, best of all, deer dislike it!
