Bring life to your garden year round by planting this hand-painted hibiscus garden stake. The hibiscus, also known in Haitian Creole as "rose kayenn, is the unofficial national flower of Haiti. They are handmade from recycled metal oil barrels.
The hibiscus garden stake comes in small, medium and large and in three different colors schemes, natural lacquered metal, white and green, and in a combination of red, pinks and yellows. The small features two blossoms and measures 6"L x 4"W. The medium is one large blossom and measures 6.5"L x 5.5" W. The large has three blossoms and measures 9.75"L x 5.5"W. Each flower comes with a 36" metal stake which can be planted firmly in the ground. Once planted the stakes rise 24 to 30 inches above ground. All of the flowers are painted with a lacquer to protect them against the elements.
Prosperity Catalyst has provided technical and business training to several metal workers in Haiti, some men and a growing number of women. Most of the metal workers have their workshops in Croix des Bouquets, on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince. With rare exceptions, they work entirely with hand tools to cut and hammer recycled oil barrels in the artwork you see on this site.
