The appropriately named “burro’s tail” (also known as lamb’s tail and horse’s tail) certainly looks like a gathering of some sort of animal tails—or a shock of unruly green hair—spilling over the side of its container. This succulent, native of Honduras and Mexico, is a favorite of indoor gardeners. The trailing branches can reach two feet (60 cm) long and look stunning dangling from a hanging basket or cascading over the sides of a large planter.
Perfect on its own or as an addition to a hanging pot. Likes lots of sunlight. A south or west-facing window is ideal. Makes a great gift plant especially for those inexperienced with houseplants.
