Each of these ingenious, daisy-shaped connectors let you easily gather up to six bamboo canes into a trellis tepee or other structure. Made from silicone and rubber with six holes, they stretch and flex to hold bamboo canes from 1/4" to 1" in diameter. They can be used to form right angles and a-frame trellises to support climbers like pole beans, cucumbers, and morning glories. And they're much easier to use than trying to tie with lashing or twine. The connectors will hold structures securely all season long and can be reused year after year. In addition to bamboo, they can also be used with twigs, stakes, and copper or plastic pipe, too.
