I can vouch for the durability of these DecoColor markers.  I've been using
a black marker on labels that I stick into pots for two or three years now,
and the Georgia sun and rain have had little to no effect on them.  I
initially thought that you had to go to an art supply store to find them,
but they're carried by craft and hobby stores, such as Michaels.
If memory serves me correctly, I think I found out about these markers
through a post on this list.

broken off.

plant name on the side of the pot.  I tried white, silver, gold, and black,
and found white worked best for me- really stood out on the pot.  It lasts
quite a long time, too, but is easily removed with a swipe of nail polish
remover (even the non-acetone kind)  They are made by Marvy and run about
$2 each.
