Plant Labels

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?

Got a question about this project?

    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

    Rocks! I found round, flat, river stones, painted them bright colors and then printed the name of my herbs on with paint pens.
