Hosta Plate with 11 inch stake.
This form is for placing orders for engraved metal Hosta labels. We have made it simple to place your order, all you need to do is supply the name of the Hosta and we will provide the correct text for the breeder/developer and any available parentage/sport information (if you need a tag for an unregistered Hosta, please use this form to add in your own data).
Our custom engraved aluminum stakes and plates are attractively engraved with your desired text. They are very long lasting and a permanent solution for marking your plantings. Unlike plastic tags/plates that become brittle and break, these labels will last many years.
In our garden, we have planted more than 1,000 varieties of Hosta plus hundreds of varieties of daylilies, astilbe, lilies, etc. The number of varieties has exceeded our ability to recall their names so many of our plants that were not properly labeled are now just another unknown attractive plant. We have purchased a number of commonly available plant labels but find that they fade in the sun, become brittle and break with time, are easily displaced during fall and spring cleanup, do not give a very attractive appearance in the landscape or are too expensive. In addition they fail to display the information that we wish to remember and present to our garden guests. To overcome these shortcomings we purchased a CO2 laser for "printing" the label information and began an engineering study on a large number of "laser-able" materials to select a permanent marker that is attractive and can be produced at a modest price. We have designed display-type signs that are mechanically mounted on a double post constructed of 1/8 inch diameter rigid galvanized steel wire rod, yielding an attractive sturdy sign. The text for the Hosta name is 36 point (maybe smaller for very long names), while the registration information is 12 point text.
