Steel-stemmed DASH is DARBY’s idol, though you may be aware if you follow the Fancifull Series of stories.

DASH can liven any patch that needs a bit of oomph, particularly hanging baskets waiting for their second set of geranium buds, planters and raised beds too. Setting the 16-gauge steel stem into the end of a typical bamboo garden stake up to the first node, allows DASH to soar above your shrubbery.

Added to a grocery store bouquet, he helps create a more memorable occasion. Your colourful dragonfly will be with you long after your bouquet blooms have faded. DASH, DARBY and DORIAN – copper Dragonflies, and BIANCA, a copper Butterfly have each been known to help a guy get out of the doghouse with one of those bouquets.

DASH’s wings are crafted from recycled aluminum beverage cans. His wings can be almost any colour imaginable… similar to real life Dragonflies.

***If you have a particular colour scheme in mind, give me a shout in the message section and I will do my best to accommodate you. Note: PURPLE is a very popular colour request though not a popular beverage can colour. Limited purple dragonflies. Order early.

The ‘height’ of your Dragonfly’s flight can be increased by inserting its steel stem into the hollow center of a common bamboo garden stake. Easily presses in up to the first node.  Suggest choosing a stake with a node at least 3 inches from the tip of the stake for secure attachment.

Stem will be shipped coiled and can easily be reshaped to suit your design.
