Stock Number: 41589
Availability: Out Of Stock
Family: Equisetaceae
Cultural Code: HT what's this?
Price: $5.00

"Skirted Horsetail" Clumps of foot tall hollow stems with each joint sprouting a whorl of elegant weeping stemlets; deciduous herb hardy in Z6 outside, spreading in sandy sun drenched locations. After a marvelous spring display, starts to disappear in the summer heat, often dormant/deciduous during all of late summer. An interesting native with a medicinal reputation, quite fabulous as emerges in the early spring; but due to early summer dormancy this native is more a botanical than horticultural wonder; never happy containerized.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
