String Gardens: Elevating Hanging Plants to Art

June 20, 2013 | By | Comments (3)

I love a hanging fern or succulent, but they’re nowhere near as eye-catching as my new obsession: Dutch horticultural artist Fedor van der Valk’s string gardens, which are essentially hanging works of floral art.

Behold:

Bulbs

Hanging bulbs sprout cheerful blooms

Citrus trees

Hanging citrus trees? Wow.

Orchids

Breathtaking orchid arrangement

Poppies

Poppies protrude from this dangling stunner

For more eye candy, check out Pop Sugar Home’s interview with van der Valk, featuring more photos of his dazzling work.
