How To Grow A Burro's Tail Succulent Outdoors

This succulent is one beautiful plant due to its thick trailing nature and fleshy blue-green leaves. Here you’ll find a guide to growing a Burro’s Tail plant outdoors in temperate regions.

Sedum morganianum likes bright shade and does best in indirect light. It’ll burn in the strong, hot direct sunlight. Mine gets partial sun in the morning which it prefers.

All those plump leaves store water so be sure not to water too frequently. In a nutshell, let the soil dry out before watering again.

Like other succulent plants, a Donkey’s Tail needs to grow in a mix with good drainage and aeration.

Pruning a Burro’s Tail plant will be necessary for propagation, to control the growth, remove sickly growth, increase fullness and promote new growth to emerge at the top.

To propagate, cut the stems to the length you want, and peel off the bottom 1/3 of the leaves. Let the ends of the stem cuttings heal over (this is where the cut end of the stem callus) for 5-14 days before planting.

The flower blooms are deep pink and emerge in clusters from the ends of the stems.
