Sedum morganianum (donkey tail or burro's tail)


One 5" cutting $5.99.

Sedum morganianum, the donkey tail or burro's tail , is a species in the Crassulaceae family, native to southern Mexico & Honduras.   It is a succulent producing trailing stems up to 24” long, with fleshy blue-green leaves and terminal pink to red flowers in summer.

Sedum morganianum grows well outside or indoors, in very good light but not extreme heat. The plant is best grown in full sunlight for strong growth and to enhance leaf coloration. It requires regular, moderate watering all year, except in winter, when it should be infrequently watered. Excess water can damage the plant in a short time.

Plants are usually propagated by stem or leaf cuttings. The leaves are quite delicate and will readily break off the stem when manipulated. The leaves will stay alive for many days and roots will emerge after a few days.
