They are nearest allied to the Ferns. They are fern-like in function but not fern-like in shape. The class includes only a single genus, Equisetum, the name derived from the Latin words equus (a horse) and seta (a bristle), from the peculiar bristly appearance of the jointed stems of the plants, which have also earned them their popular names of Horsetail, Bottle-brush, Paddock-pipes, and Scouring Rush.


Planting Directions:
Horsetail Rush/Spike Rush: This is a bog plant much like cat tails. It can be planted into a container to help keep in control or directly into your pond. It must be kept wet to survive. Plant about 3-6” deep from the root base. Horsetail will do best in more water but do not put into water more than 4-6" above the soil line. New growth grows from each black band that you see on the stalk. You can put them into the ground or planters if not into a pond...however they need a lot of water to really grow and get established.

“Water Plant” Planting Directions





· Hardy Water Lilies will grow in a variety of planting mediums such as sand, clay, sub soil, or pea gravel. Do not use peat moss or potting soil and take care not to cover the growing tip or bud. Can be grown in pots and submersed or directly into a pond. Can also be attached to an anchor and thrown into a pond, it will take root from there. Lily’s require at least 4 to 5 hours of direct sun light. They will grow well in 6 inches to 2 feet of water. A monthly fertilizer tablet will increase the blooming potential of your plant. Fertilizer tablets are available at most garden centers.



Great link on planting these.

· Pickerel Rush/Arrowhead/Cat Tails: These are rhizome plants like the water lily. Do not plant as deep as a water lily. Plant in a pot like the lily but submerse in about 4-6” above pot. They can also be planted directly into your pond.



· Floating primrose & Parrots feather plants: is just that. Just toss out onto the area you want it to grow! In the winter they sink to the bottom then pop up again in spring. You can however plant this in pots as well and it will do wonderfully.If your region does freeze it is better to plant in pots below the freezing line.



· Horsetail Rush/Spike Rush: This is a bog plant much like cat tails. It can be planted into a container to help keep in control or directly into your pond. It must be kept wet to survive. Plant about 3-6” deep from the root base. Horsetail will do best in more water but do not put into water more than 4-6" above the soil line. New growth grows from each black band that you see on the stalk. You can put them into the ground or planters if not into a pond...however they need a lot of water to really grow and get established.



· Spider Lily :is also a bog plant and needs water to survive. Must be planted into the soil in a pond to prevent from freezing. They can be planted into a container and then dropped into your pond(just needs to be submersed and kept from above ground freezing) Plant bulbs twice the size of their circumference.



· Purple water Iris :is also a bog plant and can be planted into a pot or along the pond edge. This is a much smaller rhizome then regular iris plants; however it gets very massive and intricate root systems!
Water Hyacinths: ls a great plant for water filtration and oxygenation in the pond. All you do is toss it out and let it go! You can break off the baby plants as they get at least 4 leaves so they will float on their own.
