Hardy perennial into zone 4 that can take full sun to part shade, prefers some shade as tips may "burn" slightly browning if put in direct sun, also called "dwarf scouring rush" due to its high silica content lending to use in polishing and scouring . Reaches a height of only 6 in. - 8 in. likes to be in very shallow water near the pond surface, makes a great low growing companion plant in container gardens . Growing very much like bamboo except spreading much slower, it can be used in or outside of your pond to provide a unique look, can also be used as a ground cover . Buying a bog plant like this already potted in aquatic soil is a big advantage in terms of established root growth making for an easy transition into your pond reducing the risk of failure

Dwarf Horsetail Reed, or Equisetum scirpoides, is a true miniature descendant of the standard horsetail reed which dates back millions of years. This cute little version has the same black joints on dark green stems and pine cone shaped tips as the larger one, only in dwarf form. This plant makes for a very interesting scene along the edges of any pond.
