    Got to love those dancing yellow ladies.
    Mine are in s/h & are very rapid growers.

    Pretty flowers, Sue!

    Did the spike actually grow down, or can't it support itself?

    I prefer to say not that it can't support itself, but that it is "arching". In other words, yes, it started out growing upwards.

    I don't like staking spikes unless I have to. I think it looks better without the stake.

    It looks great - no question there! As long as it isn't in danger of breaking. Besides, you've got the best-dressed washing machine now!

    If I don't stake, they break.

    Without FAIL.

    I've even tried staking them only partially, so they don't look like they've got something shoved up their :toofull: , but they'll STILL break, right above the tie.

    Pretty cool you got the "natural" look to work, Sue.
