Whether you’re coaxing night-blooming moonflowers or papery-thin clematis, climbing vines and their flowers flourish when they have a little something to climb onto. Here’s an array of pryramidal tuteurs to help your garden grow.

Above: This galvanized wrought iron Obelisk Plant Support is as handsome all by itself as it is covered with vines. Available in four sizes at prices starting from £28 at Iron Works of Bath.

Above: This zinc Garden Tuteur with a hand-forged oak leaf and acorn finial is $158 from Terrain.

Above: While this 84-inch-high Garden Obelisk isn’t available for online purchase, I love the classic obelisk shape. For more information, see David Iatesta.

Above: For a more home-grown look, this Rustic Bentwood Tuteur is made from Canadian speckled alder branches. It’s $40 from SNL Creations on Etsy.

Above: At 78 inches high, a Fleur De-Lis tuteur is simple enough that it lets the plants really shine. It’s $23.49 from Aubuchon Hardware.

Above: A Zinc Cone Trellis from Terrain, available for $48.


Above: The Metal Garden Obelisk is an elegant, simple option with plenty of legs for hosting climbing vines. £11.99 from UK Garden Supplies.

Above: This Rustic Natural Cedar Pyramid Trellis will become beautifully silvery with age. It’s currently on sale for 139.99 from Outdoor Living.


Above: An Expanding Willow Obelisk is from £8.99 to £9.99 depending on size from Crocus.


Above: The Akoris Garden Tuteur is a favorite at Gardenista. It’s available in seven colors at Terra Trellis for $279.
