Product description

Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is among the oldest of all plants, having dominated the plant world for 100 million years. In ancient times, it was a giant fern-like tree. The twenty species surviving today are miniature versions of their ancestors. Horsetail is known for its abrasive texture. In fact, Horsetail can be used to sand wood or scour and shine metal. This remarkable quality is due to its high silica content. Silica, a vital element of health, is found in all tissues and organs of the body, including the skin, hair, nails, teeth, bones, tendons and ligaments. Horsetail yields a deep green color when used for dying fabric. The cut stems also make an interesting addition to herb and flower arrangements.For more than 75 years, long before it became fashionable, Alvita was championing the profound health-giving properties of herbal teas. Alvita travels to the far reaches of the globe for the finest herbs, the best growers, the most precious sources.Small wonder that so many consumers trust the Alvita name.

Equisetum Horsetail Plant

The horsetail plant grows where it stays wet or where it gets plenty of water.  It is sold in nurseries as a water garden or bog plant.  In some areas it can be very invasive.  In northern California we saw a form of horsetail growing dense in wet areas along some roads and were told it was considered a noxious weed as it was so invasive.  The form we saw there had hair like “leaves” around each node on the small “canes”.  The Equisetum we see locally does not have any growth around the nodes, it is just a group of what look like small canes.  In fact it is sometimes mistaken for bamboo.  With the canes that have a series of nodes and it’s invasive nature I can see why someone might think it is bamboo.
Horsetail needs plenty of light, preferably full sun.  It also needs plenty of moisture.  You will need to water it almost daily or plant in an area that stays wet or damp.  Ours grows along the shore of  our pond.  It has slowly expanded but never become a problem.  It gets to about 2 to 3 feet tall with canes about three eights inch in diameter.  I’ve seen two other forms for sale at nurseries, one a little smaller and another that is very small.  The canes are only about 6 inches tall and 1/8 inch in diameter. All like to be grown in wet soil.
Like bamboo, horsetail takes silicon from the soil and concentrates it in the “canes”.  This is what makes bamboo so hard and it makes horsetail a natural form of steel wool.  It has long been used as a “scouring” plant to clean pans and dishes.  It was used to polish metals at times.  It makes a beautiful plant for the water garden.  The canes have a deep, dark green color with evenly spaced nodes on each.  I planted a piece someone gave me many years ago.  It is somewhat shaded by bamboo but has slowly spread to cover an area  a few feet in diameter.

We saw horsetail plants similar to the one above in northern California.  In areas along the road it grew in thick patches.  We were told that it was...
