I can vouch for these markers. They are simple and elegant and anyone can
easily look at the name of the hosta without having a marker in view. Engraving
rocks sounds really neat too. I used to use a P-Touch to make laminated labels
for wood sticks or pieces of plastic that I would then hide under the plant.
Then I saw these simple metal markers Bob writes about. Mine have metal dangly
tags--you write on them with a stylus (a ballpoint pen would work) and it
"engraves" the metal, which is soft. But I think ifyou use a laundry marker and
then a little clear lacquer or nail polish over the writing, it should be a
while before they fade.
