Plant stands are a piece of furniture in your yard, and choosing the right one can be more difficult than deciding where you are going to put those newly potted plants. We’ve shared our favorites.
Easy to assemble
In just a few minutes you can put this lovely plant stand together. This outdoor plant stand is a natural choice for your corner patio or balcony. It’s so attractive you could even use it inside. With enough room to hold seven potted plants, we love the attractive staggered design. The whole unit stands about 4 feet tall and is about 16 inches wide.

The A-frame design holds your large pots with elegance, and the warmth that all-wood provides makes an attractive addition to your garden. With three large shelves, show off those big bright hibiscus blooms, fragrant creamy gardenias, and even those cute decorative peppers. This outdoor plant stand is 42-inches high and 38-inches wide, created from specially treated wood. This wood is burned, usually done with a blow torch, to scorch the outermost layers of wood. Then the wood is sanded to an even, and dark paint-like surface, but without the worry of scraping or scratching a painted surface.
The durability of sturdy iron construction means these nesting plant stands will last for years. Each of the four stands is a different size, allowing you to arrange them clustered together, or combining three and one separately – as odd numbers are more pleasing to the eye. The largest wrought iron stand can hold a large six-gallon potted plant weighing up to 50 pounds. All four can nest for compact storage. Imagine how elegant this would look in that shady corner when adorned with coral bells, and assorted hostas.
The metal scrollwork will stay strong and beautiful for years as it has a rust-proof coating. The matte black finish on this plant stand makes it the perfect companion to show off your potted plants. The stairstep three-tier design is aesthetically pleasing and looks even better with your aloe, grasses, sedges, combined with bright bulbs, dahlias, or marigolds. Crafted from durable metal, the coated metal stand is about 28 inches long and about 24 inches wide. Each shelf is eight inches deep.
Oodles of options
There are oodles of display options with this multi-tiered plant stand. If that corner of the patio is starting to look a little like a jungle, give as many as ten plants a place to pose. There are six tiers on this all-fir plant holder. At 48 inches high and 49 inches long, this might just be the place for the vanda orchids, Boston ferns, and coleus. Each shelf is about 10 inches deep, so you can use it to hold not just plants but even some garden decor. We love that this wooden stand also comes with casters so you can move it from place to place.
