This plant is native to Southern Mexico. The Sedum Burro's Tail has distinctive trailing stems covered with plump green leaves. It may also flower during the summer with pink or red star shaped flowers at the tips of the stems.
Light conditions: indirect, bright light (for example not on a windowsill that gets direct sun at any point in the day)
Neediness: Can withstand periods without watering. Worth noting that stems are delicate, and leaves will break off if handled or moved but they can be easily propagated from these fallen leaves.
