Woodland Horsetail

I had a chance to photograph another kind of Equisetum lately. This is one of my favorites because it's so lacy. This is Equisetum Sylvaticum, Woodland Horsetail.

This one also grows in layers like the Meadow Horsetail. Here's a top view.

It's easy to identify. The branches are subdivided. That's what makes it look so lacy.

That makes five kinds of Equisetum I've showed you! Still at least one more kind that grows locally.

See E is for Equisetum

Your blog is fun, and your DAILY posts are inspiring. How do you keep up with all that posting, while still visiting and commenting on so many fellow bloggers' posts?

It looks like it is soft to the touch. Is it?

It does look lacy. I like it

Hi Linda- I really enjoy sharing my adventures and botanizing with everyone, so I rarely stress over blog posts. I'll go check out my award. Thanks!

Lin- well, it's softer than the other horsetails, but not really.

Ann- It's one of my favorites of the equisetum.
