Equisetum hymale

Known as dinosaur grass because it is one of the oldest known plants this is a very statuesque and interesting, hollow grass a bit like bamboo. It has cone type "flowers" on the tips. It also spreads and is in danger of strangling the Lobelia Cardinalis as it moves out of the planter it was put in and colonises those next door.
