Our 5 great reasons to stake your plants

It’s that time of year where our plants are growing up and those flower stems are getting really top-heavy with bright and large flowers.

But those flowers can start to droop or even fall completely over.

Here are our 5 great reasons why you should stake your flowers and plants:

  • To keep them growing upright to keep looking beautiful and not start to bend their flowers or stems of those flowers.
  • To stop them from laying over nearby plants so they don’t shade them out or smother them.
  • To stop flopping or fallen over stems from kinking or breaking their stems.
  • To lessen pest and disease infestations.
  • And, to keep your plants and flower from blocking walkways and entrances.


10 common plants that need staking:

  • Crocosmia
  • Liatris
  • Coneflower
  • Black-eyed Susan
  • Penstemon
  • Dahlia
  • Lupine
  • Sunflower
  • Dephinium
  • Foxglove
