Key to Tasmanian Dicots

Equisetum hyemale (Equisetaceae)

Equisetum hyemale (horsetail) is a vigorous weedy species that like wet ground or ponds. It is unmistakeable - the foliage resembles much enlarged branchlets of Allocasuarina (sharing the same unusual leaf arrangement), but softer, erect and unbranched. The stems can have terminal cones.
