Giant Scouring Rush
Equisetum hyemale var. Robustum (G-0071)
Boasting a strong architectural appeal, this easily grown California native has sturdy bamboo-like stems, which remain evergreen in warmer climates and grow much taller than the species. The deep green clumping shoots are divided by brown joints and, because they contain silica, were once used to polish tin and wood. A topnotch specimen, in or out of water, Giant Scouring Rush’s straight-up, energetic habit should only reside in containers.
Size: 5' 0" – 7' 0" high x 2' 0" – 3' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
