Flowers grown from the earth can freshen any landscape with a splash of colour, making even the most dismal space seem cheerful. Flowers, however, don't have to come up from the earth to do this; there are several varieties of plants that look striking hanging down from the ceiling, letting their colours affect the room from above.

The moss rose originates in South America and is a plant that can thrive in extreme heat with little water. This plant produces flowers that come in a range of colours, including rose, orange, white, yellow, pink, purple and red. When planted in a container hung from the ceiling, the flowers will gracefully tumble from the pot, creating a brilliant cascade of colours that will draw people's eyes upwards when they enter the room.
Dried and Upside Down
Drying flowers by hanging them upside down is a long-practiced tradition; it not only preserves the flowers and keeps their colours as vivid as possible, but makes for a strikingly old-fashioned way to decorate a room. Simply fasten a rubber band around the flowers and hang them away from direct light from a nail or hook in the ceiling. You can assemble several bouquets for drying, set up a clothesline a few inches from the ceiling and hang several drying bunches of flowers from the line for a truly eye-catching look. You can do this with any variety of flowers, such as hydrangeas, roses or violets.
Black-Eyed Susan Vine
The black-eyed Susan vine is a climbing vine that has cheerful-looking cream, light yellow or bright yellow petals and dark, almost black, centres. These plants enjoy full to partial sun and lots of water. Because they flourish so easily and grow so steadily, gardeners often use them to adorn trellises, gates and even mailboxes. However, you can grow them from a pot that hangs from the ceiling and the flowers will flow from the pot like rays of vibrant sunshine.
