Around 2,600 years ago, one of the most famous collections of houseplants ever assembled, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, was created by the Babylonian emperor Nebuchadnezzar for his wife, Queen Amytis. To remind Amytis of the lush greenery of her Persian homeland, Nebuchadnezzar built indoor gardens. Palm, cedar, and date trees, and fragrant flowers were suspended from the ceiling and cultivated to grow upside down.
