Aluminum Plant Stakes are especially helpful if you collect a specific kind of plant, or if just want to remember what you planted (this is getting harder and harder). The best identification markers are the permanent aluminum signs. The 10" tall ones are the best size for identification. They're easy to write on and they're not shiny so you're not blinded by the reflections. My old rose collection has been labeled with them for more years than I care to share. The only thing I have done is re-write the name after a few years. The writing doesn't fade if you use a black wax pencil
. I just re-do to brighten it up a little. Ten in a package.
