Tall, strong, and confident, this painted Western Fir tuteur is ideal for vines that like to stretch skyward. The crisp white framework is a pretty foil for greenery with (or without) showy blooms—it's equally effective supporting Beans or Peas in a vegetable patch, displaying Clematis in a perennial bed, creating the focal point of a formal herb garden, or topping a large square planter wherever you need a vertical accent. Easy to assemble with a Phillips screwdriver. Measures 81″ tall and 2′ square at the base.
HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

Assembling this tuteur, we were diappointed but not completely discouraged by how easily the wood split. Indeed, some of the pieces came with visible splintering straight out of the box. Even so, it looked good and was serviceable when we got it together and installed in the garden.
Two days later, roughly 50% of the surface of the white tuteur was yellowed. The yellowing is all over, not just near the ground, and it happened so quickly that it suggests the glue failed when exposed to sunlight. It now has an awful appearance, and we're torn between painting it (while in place - obviously not ideal) or tearing it out and replacing it. If you're hoping for the sort of longlasting white finish you might get from a sprayed-and-sealed outdoor product, you'll be disappointed.
However, since this is a relatively affordable product, and it does look good (at least for the first week...time will tell beyond that!), you might consider priming, painting, and sealing the tuteur before you set it out to save yourself this trouble.
