Great Horsetails near Stretton
Great Horsetails near Stretton
The horsetails are primitive spore-bearing plants, related to the plants that lived in Carboniferous times and produced the Coal Measures. The Giant Horsetail [Equisetum telmateia] is one of two species that produces its sporing structures before the green shoots appear - the other one is E. arvense, an insidious 'weed' of gardens, often wrongly called Marestail, but that is the imprecision of common names for you!
