I'm interested in dwarf horsetail as ground cover. Need to know if this grass is toxic for dogs, cats, or birds. This kind of info in your plant descriptions would be very beneficial for us animal lovers. Thanks muchly. Have a grand day.

Horsetail is poisonous to livestock, but I can find no reference to it being toxic to household pets or birds. As long as you don't keep horses or cows on your property, it should be safe to plant horsetail.
