Marsh horsetails are smaller and more delicate looking than most other horsetails.
Identification: Plants are usually less than 24" (60 cm) tall. Branches are so thin that they appear soft and needle-like. In some cases the branches are sparse or not present at all. Cones are about 1" (2.5 cm) long. See Equisetum for a comparison chart.
