Trellis and Tuteur

Trellis and Tuteur......doesn't it roll off the tongue like Chocolate and Zucchini? Fanny and Alexander? Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers? OK, forget about the last one.

Most of us are familiar with trellises. They provide support for climbing plants as well as adding a vertical element to gardens. Tuteurs, also known as obelisks, are similar but are pyramidal as opposed to flat.
