***EXPECT: leaf/stem changes from JUNE-OCT DURING SHIPPING!: SPECIAL CARE! Your FULLY MATURE Horsetail plants have JUST emerged out of full dormancy if ordering early Spring and dug fresh. THESE ARE NOT STARTER PLANTS! Horsetail plants DO NOT like to be moved and it's top growth are susceptible to changing temps while being shipped and transplanted. Horsetail plants are normally transplanted in the Fall of the year AFTER their top have died down.

***IF TOPS APPEAR wilted,discolored and/or dry/brown/brittle, limp or weak...THIS IS NORMAL!!!!....and does not affect the healthiness of the plant as ALL of it' energy is in it's fully mature root system.

Simply cut off any distressed tops half way and pOT UP, placing in FULL shade and allow them to do what they will...even dieing down completely. ****Plant out in permanent location in the Fall of the year when their tops have died down (turning black/brown). All of it's energy is in it's mature healthy root system.

****Horsetsail plants require 1 FULL year growth cycle to acclimate to your new climate and will produce double it's stems next spring! You may attempt to plant straight out in it's permanent location if planting in FULL SHADE. They will go through their natural cycle in 1 years growing season and continue to spread by it's root system.

Horsetail is a very primitive perennial plant with dark-green hollow, jointed or segmented stems 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick with no true leaves. Stems may be singular or have whorls of branches. Only single stems produce the cone-shaped spore producing body at the tip. Horsetails can be standing in water or in wet areas. Horsetail stems contain silicon crystals (i.e. sand) embedded in its tissue. This gritty texture gives it a common name of “scouring rush”.

VERY HARDY! Grows in most any soil and thrives in zones 2-8

Medicinally, Horsetail is used for “fluid retention” (edema), kidney and bladder stones, urinary tract infections, the inability to control urination (incontinence), and general disturbances of the kidney and bladder. Often used as an effective remedy for varicose veins when used internally as tea and externally as poultice. *(See our Varicose Vein Herbal Salve in our Etsy shop).

It is also used for balding; tuberculosis; jaundice; hepatitis; brittle fingernails; joint diseases; gout; osteoarthritis; weak bones (osteoporosis); frostbite; weight loss; heavy menstrual periods; and uncontrolled bleeding (hemorrhage) of the nose, lung, or stomach.

Horsetail is applied directly to the skin to treat wounds and burns.

Live plants are susceptible to leaf/stem changes during shipping/season as otherwise described. This condition is NORMAL and does not qualify for refunds/returns or exchanges. EXPECT browned/wilted/drooped/leaf drop/black stems upon arrival in SOME cases. This does not effect the overall healthiness of the plant as all of these conditions will happen naturally in the Fall/Winter months when plants go into dormancy. Should varying leaf/stem conditions occur, pot up immediately upon arrival and keep in shaded area and plant out in permanent location in Fall. The only circumstance allowed for refund is if plants show up damaged/broken. All buyers are required to send pics on arrival in these conditions for refund.
Height and width of plant is irrellevent to determining size of plant as it is it's AGE of it's root system that determines size unless otherwise stated of approx height or width in individual listings. Plants are often times pruned down prior to shipping either to encourage thicker branching for next growing season or it is past it's growing stage for the season when 'spent' top foliage is cut off. Perennial flowers will die to the ground in the Fall/Winter months and woody perennials will lose all leaves. During Fall and Winter shipping, EXPECT: No leaves/browning/dried/black stems/droop. This is a NORMAL characteristic of all perennial plants coming from our far North Nursery
