Flat shape, freestanding Garden Obelisk for Roses & Clematis
As far back as colonial times, the great country estates of North America’s East Coast were known for the splendour of their parks and gardens, many of them inspired by the traditions of English garden architecture. The Burlington Garden Obelisk takes its name from a free-standing wooden frame found in a garden in Burlington, New Jersey.

The solid anchor, which is not unlike an old-fashioned shoe scraper, ensures that this flat shape garden obelisk is completely stable, offering a good alternative to a wall trellis for anyone wishing to conceal an unattractive surface behind a sheet of colour and foliage.

For scrambling climbers, the square lattice provides sufficient support.

For the best results, choose wide-spreading shrub roses with long shoots which need support.
