Sedum Morganianum ‘Burrito Sedum’ is prized among many succulent collectors and home decorators alike for its beautiful delicate draping form. Burrito Sedum, often referred to as Donkey Tail, provides compact bean like leaves along thin strands that hang several feet when properly cared for. This plant is drought tolerant and does best in bright indirect light. Burrito Sedum can be used ornamentally as a hanging planter, or in a sitting planter where it will spill over the pot creating texture and unique contrast. Many florists use Burrito Sedum in wedding arrangements and bouquets for its one of a kind affect. This succulent blooms pink and red flowers in the summer.
