Q.Why Is My Burros Tail Losing “Leaves”?

Zone 5a | Brooksplants added on October 28, 2012 | Answered

My burros tail is beautiful except it has a very long trailing stem that has lost over half of its “leaves”. It is in a south exposure, water once a week in the summer, less in the winter. Am I doing something wrong? The top is beautiful. Should I cut this long stem off and let it start over?

If I'm understanding you correctly, there is one long trailer hanging down, and losing leaves. Could it be that this long stem is getting brushed against? Burro's Tails are very delicate, and the leaves can be easily knocked off.
