Overview The horsetail plant, also called scouring rush, is a plant that is found growing in all countries of the world except Australia. Horsetail grows naturally in wet places such as swamps and ditches or planted along ponds and water features in home landscapes. Horsetail is harvested in northern Mexico and used for polishing wood and furniture. The plant has creeping rhizomes that grow aggressively but can be controlled. Just pull up any unwanted plant or mow over them Characteristics The horsetail plant is a reed-like perennial that spreads quickly. The plant grows to a height of 3 feet with evergreen stems that are 1/3 inch in diameter. Horsetail stems are cylindrical, hollow and have many joints with no branches. The tips of the stems form strobilus, which are cone-shaped and brown in color and produce microscopic spores. Just plant them a little deeper the what they were, this will help the stand up and will promote new root grow, on some of the taller plants, you might get some tops browning which is common the root will keep growing and will come back when given time. The bottom on the reeds/plants might be a bit yellow where they are growing so close in clumps.
