Horsetails have a long history. They were around in the time of dinosaurs, when they grew as tall as trees and grew as great forests, long before flowers had evolved into existence. Somewhat fern-like, they reproduce from spores, and plants will either be the big "leafy" females like these, or a short club-like male.
