Marestail (also mare's tail and mare's-tail)
Feathery Mare's tail is a native substitute for the aggressive Parrot Feather, which is banned in many states. It has the appearance of a pleasant green bottlebrush and grows upright in patches.
Mare's Tail is an oxygenating aquatic plant. It has stems cladded with whorls of linear, blue-green foliage and some are submerged, whilst some are massed in an upright habit above the water surface. It provides useful cover for small fish and other pond wildlife.
