It may be a soil issue that isn't allowing the roots and stems to grow strong. They like moist, rich soil. Adding compost helps.
If you can drive some narrow stakes into the soil far enough away from the plant's trunk so that you don't disturb the roots, you may be able to tie the flowering stems up with soft yarn or fabric.
