A vigorous British native plant which can be grown as a pond marginal or submersed as an effective oxygenator. It’s foliage is different depending on whether it grows underwater, when the leaves are softer and slightly longer, or emergent above the water where they are shorter, forming attractive Christmas tree like spikes
Best grown in containers to keep under control and not advisable for natural or clay ponds , however not to be confused with Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) which is a hideously invasive land plant!
