What is the current height of reeds in pot? If grown in large planter, how many inches growth he...

Asked by Touchet February 7, 2021

Answer

Hello Touchet - These are very aggressive growing plants when they are in their ideal environment (partial sun with plenty of water). Although we cannot give a good estimate on growth per month, we do know that often the case with equisetum is keeping the plant in one area vs containing it. When they are delivered they are about 1 to 1.5 feet tall. For a quicker fill I would order (4) for the container you have mentioned. Thank you - National Plant Network

Answer

Hello Grace - this will grow from 1-2' tall and can spread up to 6'. Because of the aggressive spread nature of this plant, we suggest planting in containers and then placing in ground. Thank you - National Plant Network

Packaging was very good, shipping took awhile. (but everything was balled up due to the Pandemic issues) Plant network was the only place that I was able to locate this unique specimen, and it was of course backed by the Home Depot brand. Most nurseries will not carry this plant due to the aggressive nature of "Horsetail Reed" who would pay money for a plant that grows wild and you can't kill it. I built a decorative planter for this to display and use as a screen from a fence that needs to be rebuilt. It's been planted for about 3 weeks now and hasn't started to grow yet, but it hasn't died either. Can't wait to have a full lush green willowy wall to focus on.
