Hippuris Mare's Tail
A suitable addition to your pond but not recommended for aquariums. Mare’s tail usually grows half above and half under water, but it can also grow on the water line on dry land or submerged.
Mare's-tail is easy to recognise by its spruce-like appearance. Small stands spreading out through ponds and puddles look like miniature spruce forests!
Often forming dense stands, this shore plant lives in perennial water, 10 – 60 cm (4 – 25 inches) in height. Mare’s tail is green with unbranched stems but bare whorled needle-like leaves. Whorls usually grow with 8 – 12 leaves emersed and 12 – 16 leaves submersed. Above water, stems appear erect–ascending and will produce small flowers, 1mm wide. Submerged stems are limp.
