Donkey’s Tail, Sedum morganianum ‘Burrito’, is a fantastic succulent, bearing thick trailing stems covered with overlapping, plump, blue-green leaves. Star-shaped flowers in pink or red may appear at the tips of stems in summer. Too tender for our climate, it’s typically grown as a houseplant, although may be moved outside in summer. It makes an interesting addition to hanging baskets.
