W.hat can I give this plant to make it stand up straight? It also droops in heat. It gets plenty of sun and water. Thanks Sharon Erisman (class of 1965)

There are individual stakes meant to hold up flowers that have heavy heads. With all the rain, lots of flowers are having this problem. It's something like staking tomato plants. I have straight rods and rods with an open circle at the top that cradles the flower head. The garden centers usually carry the stakes and also some Velcro ties to attach the stem to the stake.
