Horsetails are rush-like plants common in the late Paleozoic period. Equisetum is the only surviving member of the family, making the plant a "living fossil." This is the largest stand I have ever encountered... and it's in a suburban park! I'll be back in the summer to get some better, up-close photos. I'm not familiar with the different species, so any help in identification would be helpful.
