Donkey's tail, also commonly known as burro's tail, is a popular and easy-to-grow succulent with rows of fleshy, tear drop shaped leaves. The mature specimens grow slow and steady, but can reach trailing lengths of up to four feet long. Indoors, the succulent can be planted and propagated year-round, while outdoors it does best planted in early spring. Red, yellow, or white flowers can emerge in late summer, though the plant rarely blooms indoors.

+ Plant Tip :
All things considered, Donkey's Tail succulents are pretty forgiving plants. Like most succulents, they do well if left slightly neglected—if you forget to water them once or twice, they'll still be just fine. Where you really have to treat your Donkey's Tail with care is while handling it. Its eye-catching beaded stems are actually extremely fragile and can break off with even the slightest touch. For that reason, it's best to choose a sunny spot to place your Donkey's Tail succulent and then, quite literally, forget about it.
