Sedum Donkey's Tail Succulent

  • 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.

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • 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.

Sedum Donkey's Tail Succulent

I ordered this plant to remind me of my Grandma, who always had Donkey's Tail in her dining room window. The plant arrived very quickly and in excellent health. It was well packaged to prevent damage and when I unwrapped it, I was surprised how good it looked after traveling across the country. I repotted this plant and it is sitting on my porch looking wonderful in its new home.

Great experience overall

I ordered the 4-inch donkey tail and was very happy overall. I received shipping updates to be able to track the package. I was out of town when the package arrived but the plants were doing fine a couple days later. I was very impressed that the donkey tail was very much intact -- Only 3 tiny leaves fell off and that might even have been me opening the package. The plants were in bubble wrap, bare root. I really appreciated the careful packaging and the biodegradable and dissolvable packing peanuts made me very happy to not have a bunch of waste. I am super excited to see how the plants grow.
