Sedum Donkey's Tail Succulent

135 reviews   |  
  • This listing features our beautiful rooted Sedum Burrito / Donkey's Tail in 2 inch or 4 inch size.

     This is an extremely fragile plant, so we'll try our best to pack it very carefully with multiple layers of bubble wrap and peanuts, and the box will have fragile signs. However, we cannot control how USPS handle packages. Therefore please understand that we cannot offer replacement or refund if some leaves break during transportation! We're more than happy to share tips on leaf propagation, so please feel free to let us know if you have any question.

     Sedum Burrito, also known as Burro's Tail or Donkey's Tail Succulent, is native to Mexico. It is an easy-to-grow perennial succulent and can tolerate any types of soil with good drainage. It has rounded and fleshy silver-green leaves that are densely packed on hanging stems.

     Ship bare root.

  • Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most 2" plants are shipped in their original plastic pot with soil. Fragile and big 4" plants are shipped bareroot to ensure their safety. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Plant orders are shipped within 3-5 days depending on availability of the plant. We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year! If you need your order urgently, please message us so we can upgrade your shipping (additional cost applied). Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging. We do not ship outside of the continental United States.

    *** We ship all year round, heat packs are available for purchase in the winter. Please purchase a heatpack if the temperature in your area is below 40F. If your heatpack isn't in the same order with your other plants, please drop us a message, we'll add it for you.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Donkey tail

I ordered the 4 inch bare rooted donkey tail with a heat pack to keep it warm from California to Wisconsin in the middle of January. Arrived promptly and in excellent shape wrapped in bubble wrap. Repotting went well and it’s doing great. Will order again. Nice size and quality of plant. Will skip looking for a “certain” plant and order direct. Look out springtime.

Donkeys tail

I liked that they where very healthy plants. I would had prefered that the 4inch came in a pot.........there was dirt that made a mess when I tried getting it out of the bubble wrap. I didnt lose very many leaves which I was very happy about.
