Horsetail Hybrid Clans
Within the Horsetail Family there are two groups, within those the species are closer related and are hybridizing within the group. To the group around the Rough Horsetail Equisetum hyemale the Branched Horsetail Equisetum ramosissimum, and the Variegated Horsetail Equisetum variegatum are belonging. The three hybrids, which are possible between the three parent species mentioned above, are the following:
 
Equisetum hyemale, Rough Horsetail, Dutch Rush
Equisetum hyemale / Rough Horsetail, Dutch Rush
Equisetaceae / Horsetail Fam.
 
 
Equisetum x moorei, Moore's Horsetail
Equisetum x moorei / Moore's Horsetail
= Equisetum hyemale x ramosissimum
Equisetaceae / Horsetail Fam.

Equisetum x meridionale, Hybrid Horsetail

= Equisetum ramosissimum x variegatum
Equisetaceae / Horsetail Fam.
 
 
Equisetum variegatum, Variegated Horsetail
Equisetum variegatum / Variegated Horsetail
Equisetaceae / Horsetail Fam.
 
 
Horsetail Hybrid Clans are usually fertile, therefore sites are not rare where a hybrid clans occurs abundantly, but without one or both of the parent species. In the Rhine Valley some ten kilometers around Karlsruhe there is a cumulation of hybrid clans of the Rough Horsetail. Beside the hybriod clans mentioned above there are also some triple hybrids, of which an origin as hybridisation between the Rough Horsetail Equisetum hyemale and each one of the hybrid clans mentioned above is assumed.

To the second group around the Field Horsetail Equisetum arvense the Water Horsetail Equisetum fluviatile is belonging, as well as the Marsh Horsetail Equisetum palustre, the Shady Horsetail Equisetum pratense, the Wood Horsetail Equisetum sylvaticum, and the Great Horsetail Equisetum telmateia. Of this group I know currently only few hybrids.

Naturally this list of Horsetail Hybrid Clans isn't complete. It will be continued on occasion.
