1. AESCHYANTHUS PULCHER (LIPSTICK PLANT)
If there's anything better than a flowering houseplant, it's a flowering houseplant that trails. This cascading beauty has red flowers that grow in clusters among a mass of waxy green foliage making them a great choice for a hanging planter or for a stylish shelving idea.
2. EPIPREMNUM AUREUM (DEVIL'S IVY)
Epipremnum, better known as Devil’s Ivy, is characterized by its heart-shaped leaves that are usually variegated in green and yellow. This tropical vine plant is a particularly fast grower so, as trailing plants go, it will fill gaps on a shelf in no time.
3. HOYA LINEARIS
The Hoya Linearis is one of the most beautifully striking on this list. The succulent-like perennial has soft, fuzzy stems that drape down in long, curtain-like greenery. It produces white flowers during the growing season that reportedly have a lemony scent.
4. VANDA ORCHIDS
There's a reason why orchids are one of the most beloved ornamental plants. Vanda orchids produce stunning clusters of blooms in a host of colors with long aerial roots that cascade downwards.
5. SEDUM BURRITO (DONKEY'S TAIL)
The Sedum Burrito, better known as the Donkey's (or Burro's) Tail, is a pale green trailing succulent with thick stems of packed leaves that almost look braided or woven.
