RE: need a plant recomendation


This is a metal (hence ugly) pole- so it would be more tied onto it than
anything.  I don't know if they will be upset about a plant growing up it,
but I figure I'm willing to risk it.  We live in a quiet neighborhood off
the beaten path- so it's not like city workers come by here more than once
every 10 years anyway.

Will the city let you do that? Here we may not attach anything to any
utility poles. Of course, they've only in the past few years started using
cherry pickers instead of the workers using shoe cleats & belts to shimmy up
the poles!
