This item arrived today and we assembled it within an hour. It mounts into the ground by simply pushing the stakes in--seems to work well enough. All-in-all the Obelisk looks good. A few caveats though:
Assembly takes some physical effort to get nuts and bolts to fit.
The rings must be mounted on the inside (the instructions clearly state this, but it's almost intuitive to try and do it the other way).
Nuts and bolts are not the highest quality and did not come with lock washers. On the upside they will probably lock up from rust before they come loose.
The vertical segments stack but there is no hardware to hold them together. This might be a problem in a near-term windstorm, but the rose should hold everything together once it's established onto the trellis.
Though the unit, the instructions and the packaging say "China", it still looks good and will probably serve the purpose.

I purchased rose pillars from you several years ago. From the photo looked like the same thing.....not. Very difficult to put together, flimsier. I had to put liquid nails to hold together. *** We're very sorry you are disappointed in your new rose pillar. We did change suppliers which might account for the differences you noticed. ***

It's quite nice, but after a few years it rusts. I need to prime and repaint mine.

I wish you carried this in copper, I have some from years ago and I like the way they look better. These are nice, a pain to put together, the wrapping is a challenge, but sturdy. The medium is quite big, look forward to seeing my roses growing up them.
