I kind of like these Fiddlehead stakes from Kinsman.
They'd look the part in a shade garden, and I like the whimsical air about them. Made of steel, they are clear coated and come in two sizes -- so they can be used either in garden beds or in containers. The large ones are 32, 40, and 48 inches tall. The smaller ones are 14, 19, and 25 inches. Hand-crafted as well.
