Burro’s tail plant is a hanging plant with long stems covered with overlapping, blue-green, cylindrical leaves, looking much like an animal’s tail. The clustered, pink flowers are not common in cultivation.
This plant is extremely fragile and loses leaves when moved. Consequently, it should be left alone. There is a cultivar called the giant burro’s tail that doesn’t lose its leaves as readily. The fallen leaves root quickly and produce more plants.
