There are always plants that need a bit of support to stand tall. Lilies and gladioli are the worst in my garden. A few years ago I got a local craftsman to make me these supports, and I love them. They look decorative with no plants in them, but really earn their keep when the flowers need them.
ps - I never thought I would have gladioli in my garden - but tucked in amongst other plants, they are fabulous in mid-late summer when many things are in between flowering. They add height and really strong colour. And so many different colours available these days.
