I live on Skye however my interest is ferns rather than horsetails.

However if you let me know what info you are looking for I will find out the info for you.

The island Skye in Western Scotland is an exceptional place in harbouring no
less than five horsetail hybrids. Apart from the ubiquitous E. x littorale, E.
x dycei, E. x rothmahleri, E. x font-query and E. x trachyodon have been
reported there.

E. x font-query covering a vast area seems hard to miss, but the other hybrids
too, though of exceedingly rare distribution, apparently build up large

Is anyone here familiar with their growing sites?
