Plant Labels

Plant markers 04.21.15
Fellow Hometalker Erica Glasener and I visited a new nursery together today and inevitably brought back a few plants. I bought a cardoon, which will grow into a large, spiky, distinctive plant. I'll put it by the street and I'm sure my neighbors will ask what it is.

My question is this: What are some interesting ideas for a label?

I'm not fond of plastic or wooden stakes.....so what have you used that worked well?

    I've found that paint pens last even longer than permanent markers... you find them in the craft aisle of most big box stores, or at any place that sells art supplies

    BeckySue, those are pretty. I have done really ugly versions of that before to mark plants, but these are great.

    Use old popsicle sticks or the tags off of bread bags

    Use garden stakes attached to old clay pots or plastic containers
