Donkey's Tail, scientifically known as Sedum morganianum 'Burrito', is an excellent succulent plant with thick trailing stems that are covered with plump, blue-green leaves that overlap each other.

During the summer season, star-shaped flowers in shades of pink or red may emerge at the tips of the stems. Although it's too tender for some climates, it can be grown as a houseplant, and it can also be moved outside during summer. With its unique appearance, this plant can be a great addition to hanging baskets.

Watering: this plant is a succulent storing water in its leaves, during summer months only water when the soil feels dry to the touch. It will need less frequent watering during the winter months. Instead of pouring water directly through the foliage, irrigate using the bottom-up method  by placing the pot on a saucer of water (25% submerged) until thorough absorption. 

Humidity: This is not a necessity; however, a quick hose down from time to time will hydrate the leaves and wash away dust or potential pests.

Light: Sedum Burrito prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much can scorch the leaves.


Temperature: keep at a normal room temperature, allow the temperature to fall in winter but avoid low temperatures. Frost is the enemy of a Sedum!

Ttoxicity : this plant is not toxic to pets.

Origin: Native to southern Mexico.
