Very versatile with a tough-but-gentle soft rubbery exterior and a strong galvanized steel core. This wire is tender enough to tie plants to a support, yet strong enough to hold bamboo and other supports with ease. More economical than other brands especially since it's UV-stabilized so it won't break down after 6 months in the sun. It will handle extreme temperatures, and it's reuseable. Fasten shrubs, plants, flowers, vines, climbing roses, tomatoes, and more. Soft, pliable and gentle.
