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. Send e-mails to Harvey@metalplanttatg.com to add in your own data).
Our custom engraved aluminum stakes and plates attractively engraved with your desired text are very long lasting and a permanent solution for marking your plantings. Unlike plastic tags/plates that become brittle and break, these labels will survive and look attractive for many years.
In our garden, we have planted more than 1,000 varieties of Hosta plus hundreds of cultivars of daylilies, astilbe, lilies, etc. The number of cultivars has exceeded our ability to recall their names, and 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 and find that they fade in the sun, become brittle and break with time, and are easily displaced during fall and spring cleanup. Many also do not have an attractive appearance in the landscape or are too expensive.
The text for the Hosta name is 36 point ( a little less for very long names), while the registration information is 12 point text.
