Burro’s Tail Hangs Out

July 26, 2011 by

Paris Lowitz, a recent graduate from the Carnegie Mellon University School of Design, designed this elegant styrene plastic plant vessel for the Burro’s Tail plant. Her vessel is suspended from a thin wire “to accommodate the Burro’s Tail natural hanging qualities.”

Lowitz says she made design choices carefully considering proportional relationships so that the vessel would showcase the plant appropriately and aesthetically, at the same time blending well well within its environment.

So what do you think, indoors or out, or both?

    “Burros Tail

    Sedum morganianum, commonly known as Burroâ??s Tail or Donkeyâ??s Tail, is an interesting succulent plant that makes for an eye-catching hanging basket. The branches can get to be quite long, provided they donâ??t get knocked around â?? this plant is pretty delicate. The fleshy leaves resemble jelly beans with a slightly pointed tip and have a greenish-blue cast to them.

    Like most succulent plants, Burroâ??s Tail likes to get a lot of sun. Direct sun is best, but partial or filtered sun will do. Lots of sun will stimulate the most growth and may even bring some little flowers. The flowers of Burroâ??s Tail are small but pretty and are pink.

    Burroâ??s Tail likes a very well-drained potting mix, and be sure that there are holes in the bottom of the pot. Err on the dry side with this plant, as rot is impossible to recover from. It is recommended that water soluble fertilizer be used for this plant. Not much is needed, so use sparingly. I give my Burroâ??s Tail fertilizer at every other watering.”
